Task 1: In the graph below, construct
Millsville’s PPF in blue. Be sure to place jars of applesauce on
the horizontal axis and bottles of apple juice on the vertical
axis.
Task 2: Suppose that Millsville’s ability
to produce applesauce is enhanced. More specifically, it is now
able to produce two more jars of apple sauce for each bottle of
apple juice it produces. In the graph above, construct Millsville’s
NEW PPF in red.
Task 3: Before growth in
its productive capacity with respect to apple sauce,
Millsville could produce 2 bottles of apple juice when it produced
4 jars of apple sauce. Now, it can produce 6 bottles of apple juice
when it produces 4 jars of apple sauce. Can you explain how
Millsville appears to be more productive in producing apple juice
when only its productivity with respect to apple sauce changed?
