To find the level of equilibrium real national income or GDP, you simply find the intersection of the  AE  curve with the 45° line. The levels of real GDP that correspond to these intersection points are  the  equilibrium  levels of real GDP, denoted in Figure 1  as  Y 1 Y 2 , and  Y 3 . Note that each  AE  curve  corresponds to a different equilibrium level for  Y.  Note also that each  Y  is a  multiple  of the level of  autonomous aggregate expenditure,

The Keynesian theory of the determination of equilibrium output and prices makes use of both the income-expenditure model and the aggregate demand-aggregate supply model, as shown in Figure 2 .
