Consider Garfield’s utility function given as
U(x_{1}, x_{2}) = x_{1}x_{2},
where x1is lasagna and x2 is "everything else". Suppose his allowance from Jon is
m = $8and p1= $1 and p2= $1
(i) Find Garfield’s optimal choice of lasagna and everything else and illustrate your answer graphically. Show your work.
(ii) Find an expression of Garfield’s marginal rate of substitution between lasagna and all other goods and explain its meaning at the initial choice that you found in (i).
(iii) If the price of lasagna doubled, i.e., p1increased from p1= $1 to p0= $2, what would be Garfield’s new optimal bundle? Show the bundle on your graph.
(iv) Under the assumption that Garfield’s demand for lasagna is linear, derive the demand equation from his two optimal bundles computed in (i) and (iii). Illustrate your answer graphically by drawing two graphs: one representing Garfield’s optimal choice and the other representing his demand curve for lasagna driven from the two optimal bundles.
(v) Compute Garfield’s price elasticity of demand for lasagna between the two prices p= $1and p0= $2 and explain its meaning.
(vi) Compute Garfield’s price elasticity of demand at p1= $3:
(vii) If Garfield always consumes lasagna with garlic bread. Show the effect of an increase in the price of wheat on (a) the wheat market, (b) the bread market, and (c) the market for lasagna. Draw three graphs to illustrate your answer (one graph for each market). No calculations are necessary.

I had trouble finding the relevant material for the thermal physics assignment essay and I really wanted some help with writing my assignment. The thermal physics assignment expert at HwA really understood the crux of the assignment question and delivered an excellent quality assignment essay that helped me score an A.
I was badly stuck with an argumentative term paper writing assignment when I started searching for help on the net. I never thought that I will get any sort of specialized help for the Australian universities and when HwA promised to deliver that, I thought why not? Then I chatted with the expert and she helped me out by writing and excellent term paper which helped me get great grades.
I had a very bad calculus background and for that reason I was unable to deal with the difficult sums given in the process control assignments. However, luckily for me I came across HwA and since then, never had to worry about these assignments any more.
I am very happy customer of the atomic theory assignment help services of HwA. The online atomic theory assignment expert was very attentive to all the points that were mentioned by me to be followed for writing the assignment. I did not have to give any sort of reminders for the work and I received with plenty of time for me to go through it.
Fiona O Farrell: I often lost track of the number of variables and how many equations I needed to evaluate in order to find the values. Then I came across HwA where the experts helped me out with two or three problems and helped me get a feel of how it needs to be done. That extra assistance with my simultaneous equation problems really helped me in the long run and I did well in my final exams.

Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
