TCO F) Country A produces two goods, elephants and saddles.  In the year 2006, the 100 units of elephants produced sold for \$2,500 per unit and the 30 units of saddles produced sold for \$200 per unit. In 2007, the 120 units of elephants produced sold for \$3,000 per unit, and the 50 units of saddles produced sold for \$300 per unit. Real GDP for 2007, assuming that 2006 is the base year is:

Base year 2006 100 elephants at 2,500 =                           250,000 30 saddles at 200 =                                       6,000GDP =                                                      256,0002007120 units of elephants at 3,000 =             360,000 50 units of saddles at 300 =                      15,000 GDP =                                                    375,000Real GDP with 2006 as the base year 120 units of elephants at 2500 =             300,000 50 units of saddles at 200 =                     10,000 Real GDP =                                            310,000 310,000 – 256,000/310,000 real GDP grew by 17% |
