Complete Problem # 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6 (p. 147-148). 1) A consumer has $400 to spend on goods X and Y… Px: $10 Py: $40 a) What is the market rate of substitution -0.25 =-10/40 -0.25 b) Illustrate the consumer's opportunity set in a carefully labeled diagram c) Show how the consumer's opportunity set changes if income increases by $400. How does the $400 increase in income alter the market rate of subsitution between goods x and y? 2) A consumer is in equilibrium at point A in the accompanying figure. The price of good X is $5. a) What is the price of good Y? Slope: =-(20/20) =-1 Good x = good y Price of Good Y: $5 b) What is the consumer's income? Max Units: 20 Price of good X: $5 Consumer's Income: $100 c) At point A, how many units of good X does the consumer purchase Max Units: 20 Price of good X: $5 Point A on Y: 10 Units of X: 10 d) Suppose the budget line changes so that the consumer achieves a new equilibrium at point B… 3) A consumer must divide $250 between the consumption of product X and product Y… a) Write the equation for the consumer's budget line 5X + 10Y = 250

    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.
