Individual Demand Finding the consumer’s (Marshallian) demand function from the given utility function Cobb-Douglas, minimum, linear. We did examples of these in class Homogeneity of demand functions Engel Curve

Income and Substitution Effects Graphically and mathematically you should be able to find TE, IE, SE. Graphically Examples we did in class Mathematically By using Slutsky equation Before Slutsky equation, let us review compensated demand function

Compensated Demand Function Relationship between the price of a good and the quantity demanded keeping the prices of other goods and utility (purchasing power) constant When there is price change marshallian demand function reflects both income and substitution effects although the compensated demand functions reflects only the substitution effect Marshallian and compensated demands are the same at current prices (their intersection point), but differ as price changes
