Fill in blanks A–D in the following table. To determine

Identify the values of total utility and the marginal utility.

Explanation

Marginal utility (MU) can calculated using the following formula:

Marginal utility=Change in total utilityChange in quantity (1)

Substitute the respective values from the given table in Equation-1, to get the value of MU at Point A as follows:

Marginal utility=191021=91=9

Thus, MU at Point A is 9.

The value of total utility at Point B, or at 3 units can be calculated as follows:

Total utility3units=Total utility2units+Marginal utility3units=19+8=27

Thus, at Point B, the total utility is 27
