a.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. b.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 Robbins budget line compared to (a). c.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 Robbins budget line relative to (a). d.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 Robbins budget line relative to (a). e. What combination of wings and Coca-Cola should Robbin buy in (a), (b), (c), and (d)? After careful scrutiny, Robbin budgets $12/week for Wings n Suds. Consider the following:

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-shirts Pairs of Shoes Price of T-shirts Price of Shoes Betty Wilma continued...
