Question

Let U (x ,y) = x ,y represent the consumer's utility function. If the consumer's income (M) is $1,000, the price of Good X is $10, and the price of Good Y is $20, what is the slope of the budget line or market rate of substitution between Goods X and Y?

Answer #1

1/2

if you have any doubt ask in comment i will reply asap.

If you like the answer give thumbs up.

Thank you ?

Let the Utility Function be U = min { X , Y }. Income
is $12 and the Price of Good Y is $1. The price of good X decreases
from $2 to $1. What is the substitution effect and the income
effect for good X given this price change?

1. Suppose utility for a consumer over food(x) and clothing(y)
is represented by u(x,y) = 915xy. Find the optimal values of x and
y as a function of the prices px and py with an income level m. px
and py are the prices of good x and y respectively.
2. Consider a utility function that represents preferences:
u(x,y) = min{80x,40y} Find the optimal values of x and y as a
function of the prices px and py with an...

A consumer's utility function is U(x,y) = x^4 * y^5. The
consumer's income is 4,880 EUR, the price of product x is 32 EUR,
and the price of product y is 43 EUR. Assume that the price of
product y changes to 63.
Applying the Slutsky decomposition, calculate the income effect
of the price change on product y.

Claraís utility function is u (x; y) = (x + 2) (y + 1) where x
is her consumption of good x and y is her consumption of good
y.
(a) Write an equation for Claraís indi§erence curve that goes
through the point (x; y) = (2; 8).
(b) Suppose that the price of each good is $1 and Clara has an
income of $11. Can Clara achieve a utility level of at least 36
with this budget? (

Let U (F, C) = F C represent the consumer's utility function,
where F represents food and C represents clothing. Suppose the
consumer has income (M) of $1,200 , the price of food (PF) is $10
per unit, and the price of clothing (PC) is $20 per unit. Based on
this information, her optimal (or utility maximizing) consumption
bundle is:

) A consumer's utility function is given by: U(x,y) = 10xy
Currently, the prices of goods x and y are $3 and $5, respectively,
and the consumer's income is $150
. a. Find the MRS for this consumer for any given bundle
(x,y)
. b. Find the optimal consumption bundle for this consumer.
c. Suppose the price of good x doubles. How much income is
required so that the Econ 201 Beomsoo Kim Spring 2018 consumer is
able to purchase...

Jen’s utility function is U (X, Y ) = (X + 2)(Y + 1), where X is
her consumption of good X and Y is her consumption of good Y .
a. Write an equation for Jen’s indifference curve that goes
through the point (X, Y ) = (2, 8). On the axes below, sketch Jen’s
indifference curve for U = 36
b. Suppose that the price of each good is 1 and that Jen has an
income of 11....

. Suppose your utility depends on two goods: x and y. The
utility function is u(x, y) = ln(x) + ln(y) . Suppose you have an
income of $800. Further, assume that the price of x is 8 and the
price of y is 10.
Write down the equation for the budget constraint. Compute the
marginal rate of subsitution between x and y. • Compute the utility
maximizing combination of x and y. •
Suppose your income increases to $1000...

Ron consumes two goods, X and Y. His utility function is given
by U(X,Y) = 44XY. The price of X is $11 a unit; the price of Y is
$8 a unit; and Ron has $352 to spend on X and Y.
a. Provide the equation for Ron’s budget line. (Your answer for
the budget line should be in the form Y = a – bX, with specific
numerical values given for a and b.)
b. Provide the numerical value...

An agent has preferences for goods X and Y represented by the
utility function U(X,Y) = X +3Y
the price of good X is Px= 20, the price of good Y is
Py= 40, and her income isI = 400
Choose the quantities of X and Y which, for the given prices and
income, maximize her utility.
