posted by .

Points on the graph:
A(4,140)
B(12,120)
C(8,100)
D(14,80)
E(8,60)

a) According to the PPF, Person A has ___ hours to allocate between work and leisure.

b) Between points C and E, the opportunity cost of earning an additional $10 income is ___.

c) Between points C and A, the opportunity cost of one hour leisure is ___ in forgone income.

-------

a) 8 (I looked at point C and did the slope of the point...)

b) 0 (I think it's 0 because no opportunity lost over leisure??)

c) $10 (took the difference between the points--basically rise/run and got $10...)

Are my answers correct? If not, please correct them? Thanks.

    Unfortunately, I am having trouble visualizing the graph. what are on each axis? Is the PPF on the graph drawn? Are you given a wage rate?

    b) is unlikely to be right as about everything we do has an opportunity cost, including giving up leisure time.

    Wage rate is not given, hours (leisure) on x-axis, income (work) on y-axis
