4. Suppose a person has \$8 to spend only on apples and bananas. Apples

1

cost \$0:4 each, and bananas cost \$0:1 each. Furthermore, his preferences for apples (A) and bananas (B) can be represented by U = pAB.

a) If A = 5 and B = 80, what will utility be?
b) If A = 10, what value of for B will provide the same utility in part a? c) If A = 20, what value of for B will provide the same utility in parts

a and b?
d) Graph the indi§erence curve implied by parts a through c.
e) Give the budget constraint, which of the points identiÖed in parts a

through c can be bought by this person?
f) show through some examples that every other way of allocating income

provides less utility than does the point identiÖed in part b. graph this utility maximizing situation.

Step 1

Hey, since there are multiple subparts in the question, we will answer the first three subparts. If you want any specific subpart to be answered then please submit the question again and specify the subpart in your message.

(a)

The utility from apple and banana is given as follows.

Step 2

If A =5 and B = 80 we can calculate the utility as follows.

Step 3

(b)

If A = 10 and U = 20 we can calculate the value for B as follows.
