Using the graph below, develop a  response i
Question 1
What is the maximum amount you would pay for an asset that generates an income of $250,000 at the end of each of five years if the opportunity cost of using funds is 8 percent?
Question 2
Suppose the supply function for product X is given by Qxs = ?30 + 2Px ? 4Pz.

How much of product X is produced when Px = $600 and Pz = $60?
How much of product X is produced when Px = $80 and Pz = $60?
Suppose Pz = $60. Determine the supply function and inverse supply function for good X. Graph the inverse supply function.

Question 3
Suppose the own price elasticity of demand for good X is ?5, its income elasticity is ?1, its advertising elasticity is 4, and the cross-price elasticity of demand between it and good Y is 3. 
Determine how much the consumption of this good will change if: 

The price of good X decreases by 6 percent.
The price of good Y increases by 7 percent.
Advertising decreases by 2 percent.
Income increases by 3 percent.

Question 4 

A consumer is in equilibrium at point A in the accompanying figure. The price of good X is $5. 
What is the price of good Y?
What is the consumer’s income?
At point A, how many units of good X does the consumer purchase?
Suppose the budget line changes so that the consumer achieves a new equilibrium at point B. What change in the economic environment led to this new equilibrium? Is the consumer better off or worse off as a result of the price change?
