  1. Calculate the opportunity costs of increasing the number of coronary bypass operations from 250 to 500 in terms of the number of prenatal visits lost. (5%)
  2. Calculate the opportunity costs of increasing the number of coronary bypass operations from 1000 to 1250 in terms of the number of prenatal visits lost. (5%)
  3. Does this PPF exhibit the law of increasing opportunity costs? (5%)
  4. Suppose the hospital will receive some new surgical equipment that made it much easier to perform bypass operations (but has no impact on prenatal visits). What would this change in technology do to the PPF? (Select one figure from the study material file and describe). (6%)
