Then respond to the questions. Susan B. Anthony Middle School s Honor Society was planning a dance. A music committee decided to use a video-sound show for the dance, even though its price was \$300 higher than the local DJ s price. By paying for the video-sound show, the committee members believed they could attract more students to attend the dance. When the big night arrived, 250 students from a class of 300 attended the dance. It was the best rate of attendance any school dance had ever attracted. The Honor Society was pleased with the results of the fundraiser. Questions 1. The committee could not choose both the DJ and the video-sound show. Why not? What was limited? 2. What did the committee choose? 3. What was the incentive for its choice? 4. What was the opportunity cost? 5. What were the costs and benefits of the choice?
