Question:

Suppose the production possibility frontier for guns (G) and better (B) is given by {eq}G^{2} + 2B^{2} = 900 {/eq}. If you put G on x-axis, and B on y-axis, the slope of the tangent line at each point on PPF is {eq}\frac{-G}{2B} {/eq}.

a) Graph the production possibility frontier.

b) If individual's preference is U = G + 2B. How much B and G will be produced? Graph this allocation in the same graph as in part a.

Production Possibility Frontier:

Production Possibility Frontier (PPF) is the combination of goods an economy can produce exhausting all resources it has at disposal. The PPF could be used to represent the level of efficiency within an economy.
