 FOR QUESTION NO. 34 step1: find that value in f's domain where here the function attains value of 8 keeping f(x)=8 and solving for x we get x = 1. step2: find the derivative of f at this point.. i.e 1 f'(1)=26 step3: the derivates of inverse functions are reciprocals of each other so g'(8)= 1/f'(1) hence the ans is 1/26

 hey arushi and bhavya..can you help with  42 and 43... the budget line is straight and it seems,the indiffrence curve is also a straight line...hence it shud be a border solution..but unable to get any matching ans.....also for 12 and 13..for 12 i am solving it as a cournot equilibrim,but after doing all the crazy algebra, i am not getting the ans...can you please upload the working..thanks :)

 Hi..Akshay..can you help with 42..it seems the lady will consume only in period 1 or 2(since her indiff curve ) is a straight line..but to consume 1/2 unit in period 1,she has to give 0.5(1+r) in period 2..but her income is 1..so r must be 1..bt it aint one of the options..where m i going wrong?..also for 12, solved it as cournot equilibrium ..bu the ans i am getting is way off mark :(

 Hi..for 36..the middle class will consume the bundle only if utility of bundle>= utility of basic good  =>w1-p-c>= v1- p =>w1-v1>c..but it is given that w1-v1v2-p =>w2-v2>c..but this is given..hence the rich will always consume the bundle now for 37..the CS of the midl consumer v1-p..they can charge till its zero hence p=v1....for the rich,their consumer surplus is w2-c-p..they can charge till its zero..hence p= w2-c.. :)

## Re: DSE 2013 Paper Discussion

 and for 48.... if i take the regressor variable to be log(p/1000)=log P-3...since the it is just a change of base for the explanatory variable,the regressio coefficients must not change..i think
