Expert Answer

Step 1

Given,

MNLogs harvested logs with zero input cost and sold these logs to MNLumber for $1,500. Then MNLumber cut and planned the logs into lumber and sold the lumber to MNFurniture for $4,000.

Lumber used by MNFurniture to produce tables.

Quantity of tables: 100 units

Price of table: $70 per unit.

Revenue generated by MNFurniture is the multiplication of quantity of tables and price of each table he sold. That is,

Revenue = price × quantity

               = $70 × 100 = $7,000.

Step 2

The value added is that extra income/investment a company adds to its goods and services before offering them to the customers.

With the help of following table, the value added of each firm can be calculated:

Revenue (S)
