1. Compute a measure of labor productivity for 20X3 based entirely on physical measures. Do the same for 20X1. That is, from the data given, choose measures of physical output and physical input, and use them to compare the physical productivity of labor in 20X3 with that in 20X1.
2. Compute a measure of labor productivity for 20X3 based entirely on financial measures. Do the same for 20X1. That is, from the data given, choose measures of financial output and financial input, and use them to compare the financial productivity of labor in 20X3 with that in 20X1.
3. Suppose the following productivity measure was used:


Because of inflation, each 20X1 dollar is equivalent to 1.13 dollars in 20X3. Compute appropriate productivity numbers for comparing 20X3 productivity with 20X1 productivity.
