Unformatted text preview: Problem4 l f (95% 1 4—0 Brenda likes hot dogs and CocwCola. Hot Mend Cakes cost \$0.50 er bottle. There is a special promotion for Coke that will last for one month. If Brenda sends in the bottle tops from the Cokes she drinks during the next month, she will get. a refund of \$0.20 for every bottlecap beyond the ﬁrst 12 that she returns. For example, if she returns 25 bottle caps she will get back \$2.60 = \$02005 — 1'2); Brenda has \$40 to spend on hot dogs and Coke during the next Wt line with Coke on the horizontal axis and hot dogs on the vertical axis. Find the points Where the budget has hits the axes and the point Where it has a kink. At each of these three points write down the quantities of each good consumed. Problem 5 Belinda loves chocolate and always thinks that more is better than less. Belinda thinks that a. few piano lessons would be worse than none at all, but if she had enough piano lessons to get good at playing the piano, she would prefer more lessons to less. Draw a graph with piano lessons on the horizontal axis and chocolate on the vertical axis. On your graph sketch two indifference curves for Belinda that would be consistent with this story. Label the better of the taro indifference curves ALA and the worse one BB. Problem 6 Victor Finick likes to have the same amount of a: as he has of 3;.

(Hint: Each indifference curve is the intersection of two line segments.) If Victor has a. bundle that he likes better than (0, 0) and his consumption of both goods is doubled7 is Victor better off? to 3. Does Victor always prefer more of either good to less?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
