    lower opportunity cost 就是相比之下 bob 和 jessica 哪一位要犧牲的東西比較少 花的比較少就能去達成另外一項工作

    1. jess has lower opportunity cost because it cost her 1.5 wall for 1 frame while it cost bob 2 wall for 1 frame

    2. bob has lower opportunity cost because it cost 0.5 frame for 1 wall while it cost jess 0.67 frame for 1 wall.

    3.bob should paint walls and jess should paint frames for maximum results
