Explain the concept of marginal opportunity costs by giving a numerical example.

Marginal opportunity cost refers to the amount of a good sacrificed in order to produce a single additional unit of another good. For instance, if the production of 1 additional consumer good requires sacrificing the production of 3 capital goods. Then, this will be the marginal opportunity cost of producing a single additional unit of consumer good.
