## Re: Micro from DSE papers

 for the Q on inputs  v know that the firm uses input combination of the form  (x, ax ) where ax=y wich implies the ans. is option b. min(ax,y) ==> ax=y if one input is x then oter is y=ax.

 In reply to this post by Mr. Nobody 2007: (a) The objective is: Min N(d) + 2d s.t d ≥ 0.1 where N(d) = 1/d^2 and (b) the objective is: Min N(d) + 2d - N(d) s.t d ≥ 0.1 2009: Just maximise Romeo's utility st. R+J=96 and find his optimal point. And maximise Juliet's utility st. R+J=96 and find her optimal point. And then check the options. :)

 In reply to this post by Mr. Nobody 1) Praful will minimize the cost of travelling to and fro from the airport as well as the damage caused due to noise:  Cost of travelling= Rs. 2d , (Since the cost is 1 rupee per km and he has to travel distance d twice- to and fro) Damage caused due to noise in terms of rupees= 1* N(d)= 1/d^2 Thus total cost to him for living at distance d from airport= 2d + 1/d^2 minimizing total cost by differentiating with respect to d: dT.C/dd = 2-2/d^3  and equating to zero : 2=2/d^3 => d^3=1=> d=1. 2) Since praful is compensated for the damage caused by the noise he would prefer to only minimize the cost of travelling this means he will live as close as possible to the airport. Since it is given that the closest he can live to the airport is d=.1 km therefore the compensation he would receive= 1* N(0.1)= 1/(0.1)^2 = Rs. 100.
