Trevor always begins his day with a strawberry milkshake. He makes it by mixing milk(20)(x1) with five strawberries (x2). The secret of a really good milkshake lies in the optimalproportion of milk and fruit: one glass always comes with five strawberries.(a)Plot in a diagram Trevors’ preferences. Depict three indifference curves that passthrough the following bundles (5,1), (10,10) and (15,4). What is the MRS at eachof these points?(b)What utility function represents these preferences?(c)Indicate the leve of utility corresponding to each indifference curve from your draw-ing in part a.(d)Multiply your utility function by 10 and add 2 to it. How does the map of indif-ference curves change? Explain why. How was the level of utility associated witheach indifference curve affected?(e)Trevor spends $100 per month on his favorite milkshake and pays $1 for a glass ofmilk and $1 for each strawberry (they are organic). Find Trevor’s demand for milkand strawberries and depict it on the graph.(f)The organic strawberries are replaced by genetically modified ones. These are, onaverage, 2.5 times larger. Consequently, the optimal proportion of milk to straw-berry becomes 1:2. Plot the indifference curves for milk and genetically modifiedstrawberries. Write down a utility function that represents them.
