To determine which country or economy has the absolute advantage in the production of a good, you simply look to see which country can produce more. If Nobully can produce 120 yak skin coats and Medicoa can only produce 60 yak skin coats, then Nobully has the absolute advantage in yak skin coats.
You can also determine absolute advantage by seeing which country can produce one unit faster or one unit with the least amount of economic resources.
