c) Now, given the following information that b = 0.65; t = 0.25; C0= 150; I0= 200; G0= 350;and T0= 180, calculate the equilibrium level of national income (Y*), consumption (C*), andtaxation (T*).(3 marks)d) Determine the effect on the equilibrium level of income of an increase of 50 units in autonomous tax (T0).
