Advanced analysis (economics) | Economics homework help

  

ADVANCED ANALYSIS Let MUA =z = 10 − x and MUB = z = 21 −2y, wherez is marginal utility per dollar measured in utils,x is the amount spent on product A, and y is the amount spent on product B. Assume that the consumer has $10 to spend on A and B—that is,x + y = 10. How is the $10 best allocated between A and B? How much utility will the marginal dollar yield?

  

ADVANCED ANALYSIS Assume the following values for Figures 5.4a and 5.4b. Q1 = 20 bags. Q2 = 15 bags. Q3 = 27 bags. The market equilibrium price is $45 per bag. The price at a is $85 per bag. The price at c is $5 per bag. The price at f is $59 per bag. The price at g is $31 per bag. Apply the formula for the area of a triangle (Area = ½ x Base x Height) to answer the following questions. LO2

a. What is the dollar value of the total surplus (producer surplus plus consumer surplus) when the allocatively efficient output level is being produced? How large is the dollar value of the consumer surplus at that output level?

b. What is the dollar value of the deadweight loss when output level Q2 is being produced? What is the total surplus when output level Q2 is being produced?

c. What is the dollar value of the deadweight loss when output level Q3 is produced? What is the dollar value of the total surplus when output level Q3 is produced?
