His MRS = - ½ (288/16) = - $9 per hour of leisure. The overtime offer pays him, at the margin, $36/hour to reduce his leisure time.

Thus its marginal revenue function is MR = 100 – (2/5)Q. XYZ maximizes revenue if Q.

Total output Q = 30 + 45 = 75. The price we will charge: (30)2 = 7600 (45)2 = 9725 A partial representation of Ellen’s tastes and preferences over baskets of two goods, Good X and Good Y, is shown in the graph below: Current market prices for Good X and Good Y are P X = 15 and P Y = 5. Ellen’s income that she has available to purchase X and Y is is M = 75. She is a utility maximizer, and consumes integral quantities of X and Y. 1.
