Hi all, Im having trouble with a question in my microeconomics class I find I can understand things a little better if I see them in an equation but I don't think I'm doing it right How can I set this question up as an inequality equation? Each week, Tom Wu buys two hamburgers at $2 each, eight cokes at $0.50 each, and eight slices of Pizza at $1 each, but he buys no hot-dogs at $1.50 each. What can you deduce about Toms marginal utility for each of the four goods? How can I set this question up as an equation? When I set it up using the fundamental condition of consumer equilibrium(MU_1/P_1 = MU_2/P_2 = MU_3/P_3 = ....... = MU per $ of income) I got that hotdogs have a higher utility than hamburgers and I know thats not right(MU_ham/$2 = MU_coke/$0.50 = MU_pizza/$1 = MU_hot/$1.50 then I multiplied everything by $2 to deal with the fractions I think that was my first mistake). If I look at it intuitively I see that MUpizza > MUcoke = MU hamburger > MUhotdog Is that right?
