University of Wisconsin Economics 301: Intermediate Microeconomic Theory Korinna K. Hansen Practice Problems with Budget Constraints and Indifference Curves. Pretend that you are interested in consumers’ preferences about Burger King double-cheeseburgers (DCs) relative to “all of the other goods” (AOGs) they purchase. You discover that there are several distinct groups of people who have differing attitudes towards DCs and AOGs. Draw an indifference map that illustrates each set of preferences described below. Note that because each set of preferences is derived from a different utility function, each indifference map should be drawn on its own diagram. 1a). Some people get no utility at all from DCs, they get all of their utility from AOGs. 1b). Some people like both DCs and AOGs but have a stronger preference for AOGs than for DCs. 1c). Some people like both DCs and AOGs but have a stronger preference for DCs than for AOGs.

    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.
