Why final goods and services are included in the calculation of gross domestic product and intermediate are not?

Final goods and services are included in GDP because they are

only going to be sold once. Intermediate goods aren't included

because they are goods that contribute to present or future

consumer welfare but are not direct sources of utility themselves.

hope it helps a little.
