Solution:

A.

"p_x=3, G_x=\\frac {100}{3}=33\\frac{1}{3}"

"p_y=5, G_y=\\frac{100}{5}=20" B.

"100-0.25\\times 100=75"

"p_x=3, G_x=\\frac {75}{3}=25"

"p_y=5, G_y=\\frac{75}{5}=15" C.

"p_x=6, G_x=\\frac {100}{6}=16\\frac{2}{3}" D.

"p_y=5, G_y=\\frac{100}{4}=25" 2.

"MU_x=68-60=8, p_x=2"

"MU_y=29-25=4, p_y-?"

"\\frac {MU_x}{p_x}=\\frac{MU_y}{p_y}"

"\\frac{8}{2}=\\frac {4}{p_y}"

"p_y=1"
