# 1. Consider the winter activity of skiing. Assume that the rental cost of ski equipment is \$120 and the lift ticket costs \$66.  If you go skiing, you would wear the ski jacket you purchased last year for \$190. If you do not go skiing, you could either work at your part-time job, which would earn you \$101, or study at the library, which you value at \$28.Suppose that you were planning to spend Saturday working at your part-time job, but a friend asks you to go skiing. What is the opportunity cost of going skiing?Enter a whole number and no dollar sign. 2. Country A and country B both produce toasters and sweaters. In country A each worker in a day can produce either 5 toasters or 20 sweaters. In country B each worker in a day can produce either 3 toasters of 18 sweaters. Each country has constant opportunity cost of production and each has 100 workers. Enter whole numbers in each blank.Initially the two countries do not trade. Country A allocates 60 workers to toaster production and 40 workers to sweater production so they produce a total of               toasters and                 sweaters. Country B allocates 60 workers to toaster production and 40 workers to sweater production so they produce a total of            toasters and           sweaters.The two countries decide to completely specialize and then engage in trade. With specialization country A will produce               toasters and                            sweaters, and country B will produce         toasters and                                 sweaters. The two countries decide to trade 190 toasters in exchange for 950 sweaters. After trade country A will consume        toasters and                sweaters, and country B will consume            toasters and                             sweaters.
