Econ 110 PS1 : Solutions By Omair Sarwar 1.1 (d) is not a function as y = + x is not a one to one mapping. 1.2 f(3) = 3 2 + 6 + 7 = 22 1.3 Q=10 => C = 100 + 25(10) = 350 1.4 U shaped parabola with y intercept (0,5) 1.5 1.6 Q= 100 – 5p => 5p = 100 – Q => p = 20 – 1/5Q, draw graph 1.7 m = (1-3)/(5-1) = -1/2 1.8 TC = 1000 + 20Q 2.1 2x + y = 4 x – y = 1 Adding both gives 3x = 5 => x= 5/3 ; y = 2/3 2.2 Q d = 100 – 5p Q s = 50 + 5p Note that at intersection Q d = Q s => 100 – 5p = 50 + 5p => p = 10 2.3 2.1 was solved by elimination above and 2.2 was solved using substitution. 3.1 gradient fn = f’(x) = -1/x 2 at x= 2 slope is -1/4 ; x=5 slope is -1/25

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
