Econ 302 Quiz 7 McLeod Name ______________________________ ID # ____________________________ 1. Suppose there are two consumers, A and B. The utility functions of each consumer are given by: U A (X,Y) = X 2 Y U B (X,Y) = X*Y Therefore: For consumer A: MU X = 2XY; MU Y = X 2 For consumer B: MU X = Y; MU Y = X The initial endowments are: A: X = 70 Y = 16 B: X = 80; Y = 4 a) (12 points) Suppose the price of y, P Y = 1. Calculate the price of X, P
