Practice Exam 1 Answers 1 Intermediate Microeconomics 350 I-1 1. If you receive $18 worth of pleasure from the first hole of golf played and your additional pleasure from succeeding holes  drops $1 for each hole played, how many holes of golf would you play if you had to pay $2.10 per hole?  *a. 16    b. 17   c. 18    d. 19   e. 20 The reservation price measures the benefit you get from consuming a good. The player will play golf until the reservation price  is less than or equal to the marginal cost of playing the nth round. The player will use a comparison like the following: Hole    Marginal Benefit   Marginal Cost   1          $18.00               2.10   2           17.00               2.10   3           16.00               2.10   4           15.00               2.10   5           14.00               2.10   6           13.00               2.10   7           12.00               2.10   8           11.00               2.10   9           10.00               2.10  10            9.00               2.10  11            8.00               2.10  12            7.00               2.10  13            6.00               2.10  14            5.00               2.10  15            4.00               2.10  16*           3.00               2.10  17            2.00               2.10  18            1.00               2.10  19            0.00               2.10 While the golfer could play another, 17th hole, there would be no net benefit from doing so. I-2 2. A good’s price falls from $10/unit to $5/unit. From this we may conclude that:     a. the good was scarce when the price was $10/unit but is not a scarce good now     b. the good was in shortage but now is in surplus     c. the supply curve shifted to the left, while the demand curve was unchanged     d. the good changed from a good to a bad    *e. none of the above To say that a good is scarce is to say that it has a positive price. Since the two prices mentioned are both positive, the good was  scarce before, and is still scarce. (a) is false. We cannot say whether the good was in shortage before or is in surplus now. We  would need more information. (c) is false. A shift of the supply curve to the left, with the demand curve unchanged, would  cause an increase in price, not a fall. (d) is false. A bad would have a negative price, not a positive price. (e) is correct.

    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.
