[11marks]In economics, the Lorenz curveL(x),where 0x1,measures the distribution of wealth within aneconomy. As an example, ifL(0.4) = 0.1,then this means that the lowest earning 40% of households have only 10%of the entire economy’s wealth (and the remaining 60% of households have the remaining 90% of the wealth). Theliney=xis called the line of equality since this would mean that the lowest earningx% of households would havex% of the economy’s wealth.Consider a country with a Lorenz curve given byL(x) =x2ex3-1.(a) Plot the Lorenz curveL(x) along with the line of equality in Maple.
