2. Recall your readings about Shaq moving furniture and playing basketball. Use bothabsolute and comparative advantage to explain the following: Suppose you have one partner for a school project requiring both math and writing skills. If you are better than your partner at both math and writing, does this mean you should be responsible for both parts? Use comparative and absolute advantage to explain.
