Firm C,a carmaker, makes automobiles while Firm D produces automobile tires.In 2016, Firm A extracts 50,000 tons of ore, valued at \$200 per ton, usingpreviously existing machinery. Firm B produces 10,000 tons of steel sheets,valued at \$3,000 per ton, having bought and used all of the ore produced by FirmA. Firm C manufactured 5,000 vehicles and sold them all to households for\$20,000 each, having purchased 8,000 tons of steel sheets from Firm B. Inaddition, Firm C imported 5,000 engines from a foreign subsidiary, each valued at\$5,000, and purchased 20,000 tires from Firm D for \$100 each. Firm D produced100,000 tires valued at \$100 each, but only sold 60,000 tires during 2016. Firm Dpurchased 2,000 tons of steel sheets from Firm B since all of their tires are steelbelted radials.Calculate GDP in 2016 for this economy using the production (value-added)approach.
