a)      Nathan can mow 12 lawns in a day or prune 36 trees in a day. Draw Nathan’s production possibilities

curve for mowing lawns and pruning trees. Assume the production possibilities curve is linear and put the quantity of lawns mowed per day on the horizontal axis and the quantity of trees pruned per day on the vertical axis.

b)     David can mow four lawns in a day or plant four trees in a day. Draw David’s production possibilities curve for mowing lawns and planting trees. Again, assume a linear production possibilities curve and put the quantity of lawns mowed per day on the horizontal axis. What is David’s opportunity cost of planting trees? What is David’s opportunity cost of mowing lawns?

c)      Given the production information in parts a and b above, who has the comparative advantage in planting trees? Mowing lawns?
