Math Problem Statement
Consider two employees, Eddie and Urijah, working for a local construction company installing windows as well as sliding glass doors. The manager of the company is deciding how to allocate Eddie and Urijah's time throughout the workday with the goal of increasing overall productivity. The manager collected some baseline data and has taken note that in one 8 hour work day, Eddie can install 7 sliders OR 28 windows. That is, if Eddie spends the entire 8 hour work day installing windows, he can install 28 of them. Likewise, if Eddie spends the entire 8 hour work day installing sliders, he can install 7 of them. In contrast, in an 8 hour work day, Urijah can install either 21 sliders OR 42 windows Which worker, Eddie or Urijah, is comparatively advantaged at installing windows?
