Question

Tom Warren currently has 50 blueberries and 20 peanuts. His marginal rate of substitution of peanuts for blueberries, MRS* _{pb}* equals 4, and his indifference curves are strictly convex.

Would Warren would be willing to trade at the rate of 3 of his blueberries in exchange for 1 more peanut?

Answer

MRS* _{pb}* = 4 He would be willing to give up 4 blueberries for 1 peanut, at that point.

f peanuts for blueberries, MRS pb equals 4, and his indifference curves are strictly convex. Determine whether Warren would be willing to trade at the rate of 3 of his blueberries in exchange for 1 more peanut. <span>Solution MRS pb = 4 means that Warren would be willing to give up 4 blueberries for 1 peanut, at that point. He clearly would be willing to give up blueberries at a rate less than that, namely, 3-to-1. <span><body><html>
