(i)

"I = income\n"

"x,y " (variable)

"P_{x}" is the price of deodorant

"P_{y}" is the price of mouthwash

"I=P_{x}\\times X+P_{y}\\times Y"

"I=900"

"P_{x}=3"

"P_{y}=2"

"9000=3x +2y"

(ii) The budget constraint slope is negative as consumer must give up some of one good to obtain more of the other good

(iii) "9000=3x+4y"
