"MUx\u200b=0.5\\frac{x0.5}{y0.5\u200b}"


"MU_y=0.5 \\frac {x^{0.5}}{y^{0.5}}"

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

"x \\times p_x+ y \\times p_y=M"

y= 3x

12* x+4*y=240

x=10, y=30

D)

"\\frac {\\partial U}{\\partial x \\partial y} =\\frac {0.25} {(xy)^{0.5}}"

"MRS x.y = \\frac {\\partial U} {\\partial x \\partial y} = \\frac {0.25}{(10 \\times 30)^{0.5}}=0.015"
