. Suppose your initial income is I, and prices are p1 and p2.

(a) Suppose I = 400, p1 = 2.5, and p2 = 5. Solve for the optimal bundle. Graph the budget
constraint with x1 on the horizontal axis, and the indifference curve for that bundle.
Label all relevant points

(b) Suppose I = 600, p1 = 2.5, and p2 = 4. Solve for the optimal bundle. Graph the budget
constraint with x1 on the horizontal axis, and the indifference curve for that bundle.
