For each of the following functions, i) pick three utility levels and draw the precise indifference curves that are associated with the levels of your choice, ii) label the utility level of the lines--you cannot just draw random lines and assign arbitrary utility levels, and iii) give the name of preferences they represent (hint: see figures in textbook chapter 3) 2. u(x,2) -min(xi,x2) 5. u(xi, x2) -xjx2

2. 2.1 Draw the indifference curves for the utility function U(21, 22) = x1 + 3x2. 2.2 What is the marginal rate of substitution evaluated at an arbitrary consumption bundle (21, 22)? 2.3 Suppose that p1 = 5, P2 = 2, and M = 10. Find the utility-maximizing consump- tion bundle (among those that satisfy the budge constraint) for this agent. You should be able to do this without using any calculus: it should be clear from your indifference curves....
For each of the following utility functions, draw an indifference map with 3 indifference curves. Be sure to label your axes, and label your curves as IC1, IC2, and IC3, where U1 < U2 < U3. (5 points each) a. ?(?, ?) = 3? + 5? b. ?(?, ?) = ? 2 + ? 2 c. ?(?, ?) = −? 2 + ln(?) d. ?(?, ?) = min(3?, 5?)

Find the marginal rate of substitution (MRS) iii. Define an indifference curve. Show that each indifference curve (for some positive level of utility) is decreasing and convex. (b) For the utility function u2(x1, x2), can you find another utility function that represents the same preferences? Find the relevant monotone trans formation f(u) (c)...
.Use separate graphs to sketch two indifference curves for people with each of the following utility functions: U(x, y) = x + 2y. U(x, y) = min{x,2y}. What type of preferences are represented by a utility function of the form U(x, y) = square root of x+y? What about the utility function V(x,y) = 13x+13y? Consider the utility function u(x,y) = ?^2 ?^3. What kind of preferences does it represent? Is the function v(x,y) = ?^4 ?^5 a monotonic transformation...
