time Amy buys a pound of coffee she is giving up opportunity by
what

Answer #1

Solution:-

Amy has $70.00 a month to spend on the soap and coffee, i.e., budget per month is: $70

The soap cost is: $3.50, and

The coffee cost is: $14.00

**The equation to the budget constraint:**

Budget (M) = (Px*Qx) +(Py*Qy)

Now Qx = M/Px and Qy = M/Py

Thus,

If Amy spends his entire $70 on soap, he can buy 20 soaps i.e., 70/3.5 = 20

If Amy spends his entire $70 on coffee, he can buy 5 coffee’s i.e., 70/14 = 5.

The Amy's budget constraint could be drawn as below:

That means, 1 pound of coffee = 4 bottles of soap.

So, Every time Amy buys a pound of coffee, she is giving up the opportunity to buy:

**4 bottles of soap.**
