Answer to Question #48904 in Microeconomics for Shafyan
As MRSxy = MUx/MUy, then MUz/MUsd = 1, so MUz = MUsd
The optimal consumption that maximizes utility is in the point, where MUx/Px = MUy/Py, but in our case as MUz = MUsd, so MUz/$2 is not equal to MUsd/$1.
That's why this is not the optimal consumption of Sara and she needs to decrease consumption of Zinger and increase consumption of soft drinks, until MUz/Pz = MUsd/Psd.
