UCLA Economics 11 – Fall 2006 Professor Mazzocco Problem Set 5 Due by November 9 before 11:30am. 1) A consumer has utility: 5 . 0 5 . 0 y x U + = . The Marshallian demands are given by: ) ( ) ( y x y U y x x y U P P P PxI Y P P P I P X + = + = And that the Hicksian demands are given by: 2 2 + = + = y x x C y x y C P P U P Y P P U P X a) Find the Indirect Utility Function V . b) Find the Expenditure Function E . c) Using the Slutsky equation, find the expressions for the substitution effect and the income effect on X generated by an increase in P x . d) Derive the Slutsky equation for the good X for a change in the price P y . [Hint: follow the method that we used in class to derive the Slutsky equation for the good X for a change in the price P x . But instead of computing the derivatives of the starting equation with respect to P x , you have to compute the derivatives with respect to P y .] f) Using the Slutsky equation derived in part d) find the expressions for the substitution effects and the income effect on X generated by an increase in P y .

### What students are saying

• 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.
