False

## What Is GDP:

A country's GDP (which stands for Gross Domestic Product) is one of the most popular metrics used by economists to measure economic activity in a given country. The GDP includes the value of all goods produced in a given country during the year.

• The cost of primary materials and equipment used to manufacture goods are not considered final sales and thus are not included in GDP. The GDP will only include the value of the finished products sold to consumers, which in this case is $500 (not$700). Therefore the correct answer is \$500.
