Question

Determine if completeness and transitivity are satisfied for the following preferences defined on x = (x1, x2) and y = (y1, y2). (Hints: 1- You have to use z = (z1, z2) to prove or disprove transitivity. 2- You can disprove by a counter example) — x ≽y iff x1 > y1 or x1 = y1 and x2 > y2.

Answer #1

Determine if completeness and transitivity are satisfied for the
following preferences defined on x = (x1, x2) and y = (y1, y2).
(Hints: 1- You have to use z = (z1, z2) to prove or disprove
transitivity. 2- You can disprove by a counter example) — x ≽y iff
x1 > y1 or x1 = y1 and x2 > y2.

Determine if completeness and transitivity are satisfied for the
following preferences defined on x = (x1, x2)
and y = (y1, y2).
x ≽ y iff x1 > y1 or
x1 = y1 and x2 >
y2.
(Hints: 1- You have to use z = (z1, z2) to
prove or disprove transitivity. 2- You can disprove by a counter
example)

Consider a two-good economy c = (c1, c2) where the goods can
only be consumed in positive integer choices, that is c ∈ Z^2 and c
≥ 0. Consider the following three consumption bundles, x = (2,1), y
= (α, 2), z = (2, β).. These are the only three consumption bundles
Anne can choose from. Anne’s preferences are such that x ≻ y and y
≻ z, where “≻” means strict preference. Anne’s preferences are
complete and satisfy transitivity...

Consider the set V = (x,y) x,y ∈ R with the following two
operations: • Addition: (x1,y1)+(x2,y2)=(x1 +x2 +1, y1 +y2 +1) •
Scalarmultiplication:a(x,y)=(ax+a−1, ay+a−1). Prove or disprove:
With these operations, V is a vector space over R

Write vectors in R2 as (x,y). Define the relation on R2 by
writing (x1,y1) ∼ (x2,y2) iff y1 − sin x1 = y2 − sin x2 . Prove
that ∼ is an equivalence relation.
Find the classes [(0, 0)], [(2, π/2)] and draw them on the
plane. Describe the sets which are the equivalence classes for this
relation.

Let A = R x R, and let a relation S be defined as: “(x1 , y1 ) S
(x2 , y2 ) ⬄ points (x1 , y1 ) and (x2 , y2 ) are 5 units apart.”
Determine whether S is reflexive, symmetric, or transitive. If the
answer is “yes,” give a justification (full proof is not needed);
if the answer is “no” you must give a counterexample

Let there be two goods; coco puffs and grits. Assume that the
preferences satisfy basic axioms and assumptions and they can be
represented by the utility function u(x1,x2)= x1x2.
Consider two bundles X= (1,20) and Y=(10,2). Which one do you
prefer?
Use bundles X and Y to illustrate that these tastes are in
fact convex.
What is the MRS at bundles X and Y respectively?
Now consider tastes that are instead defined by the function
u(x1,x2) = x1^2 + x2^2...
