C = 400 + 0.60Y, I = 200 and NX = 100.
(a) the equilibrium level of income can be found using the formula:
Y = C + I + G + NX
Y = 400 + 0.6Y + 200 + 100
0.4Y = 700
Y = \$1750 billion
(b) the multiplier can be calculated using the formula:
m = 1/(1 - c) = 1/(1 - 0.6) = 2.5
(c) consumption and saving at equilibrium level of income will be:
C = 400 + 0.6*1750 = \$1450 billion
S = s*Y = (1 - c)*Y = 0.4*1750 = \$700 billion
If government spends additional 400, (d) the new equilibrium income will be 1750 + 400 = \$2150 billion
e) Consumption will be: C = 400 + 0.6*2150 = \$1690 billion
Saving will be: S = 0.4*2150 = \$860 billion
