At 4 = x , , 1 0.5 4 x y MRS = = . Note that this holds regardless of the value of y . Therefore, the slope of any indifference curve at 4 = x will be 0.5. Problem 3.21 By definition, the expression for MRS x,y is ( 29 x y y x y x MU MU MRS y x y x α1 == =1 1 1 , Moreover, we know that MRS x,y = 4 when x = 4 and y = 8, therefore we can solve for : 3 2 2 2 1 2 4 8 1 4 = ===...
