The Cobb-Douglas utility function U(x,y) (x?)
Given the Cobb-Douglas utility function U(x,y) (x?)(y1-?),where 0,?1. This problem illustrates a few more attributes of that function. a. Calculate the indirect utility function for this Cobb-Douglas case. b. Calculate the expenditure function for this case. c. Show that the Engels curves are straight lines.
Suppose that a consumer's utility function is U(x,y) xy 10y. The marginal utilities for this utility function are MUx y and MUy x10. The price of good x is Px and the price of good y is Py, with both prices positive. The consumer has income I. Assume that the consumer's optimal bundle is an interior solution. Show that the demand for good x is x (I/2Px) 5 Solution: We know that U(x,y) xy 10y. MUx dU/dx ...
