1 After careful scrutiny, Robbin budgets $12/week for Wings ‘n’ Suds After careful scrutiny, Robbin budgets $12/week for Wings ‘n’ Suds. Consider the following:Graph and label the axes to show how much of each good Robbin is able to buy, if the price of buffalo wing is $0.50, while the price of Coca-Cola is $1.50.In order to attract more customers to Wings ‘n’ Suds , management decides to lower the price of Coca-Cola to a buck. Show what happens to Robbin’s budget line compared to (a).Instead of (b), assume there is a sudden shortage of buffalo wings available.Now, Wings ‘n’ Suds has to raise the price of a wing to $3. Show how this event changes Robbin’s budget line relative to (a).Robbin, after winning $1,000 in the Texas lottery, decides that she can now spend $36/week at Wings ‘n’ Suds. Show how this event changes Robbin’s budget line relative to (a).e. What combination of wings and Coca-Cola should Robbin buy in (a), (b), (c), and (d)?
2 Suppose that a college student can spend $50 on entertainment Suppose that a college student can spend $50 on entertainment. This student derives satisfaction only from watching movies and playing video games. The price of a movie is $5 and the price of a video game is $2.Draw the correct budget line for this student.Label the axis.Provide the numerical amounts of movies and video games at the “extreme points.”
3 Betty and Wilma wish to buy T-shirts and shoes Betty and Wilma wish to buy T-shirts and shoes. Betty has a budget of $600, while Wilma has a budget of $1,200. using the indifference curve analyses given in the following, determine prices fro the T-shirts and shoes. For which commodity can you derive a demand curve? Derive this curve for Betty and Wilma. Finally, derive the market demand curve, assuming that they are the only consumers.Quantity of T-shirtsPairs of ShoesPrice ofT-shirtsPrice of ShoesBettyWilmacontinued...
6 Assume that for a given consumer, the marginal utility of Dreyer’s Ice Cream is 120, and the price of Dreyer’s is $4 per gallon.
