Unformatted text preview: X = M/2P X and Y = M/2P Y X = M/8 and Y = M/50. Since we are holding the consumers utility constant at its original level (U = 3600), X*Y = 3600. Therefore (M/8)*(M/50) = 3600. Solving for M, we get M= 1200 . e) (4 points) Of the total change in the quantity demanded of X, how much is due to the substitution effect and how much is due to the income effect? When M = 1200, X = 150, and Y = 24. Therefore, the change in quantity demanded of X due to the Substitution Effect is 50 (X goes from 100 150), and the change in the quantity demanded of X due to the Income Effect is 75 (X goes from 150 225). SE: 50 IE: 75...
