Before the subsidy, the price buyers pay is the same as the price producers receive; call this
price P. The equilibrium can be found by setting supply equal to demand: P/3 =100 P.
Thus, in equilibrium buy

a) Since she spends 25% of her income on x, it must be true that p xx/I = 0.25. Thus x/I =
0.25/px. This means that x/I is a constant. If I increases by 1%, x must also increase by 1%.

Solutions
1.
(a) Since marginal cost is equal to $1.50 and the price is $2, each hot dog vendor will want to
sell as many hot dogs as possible, which is 100 per day.
