# Calculate Change in Final Income, If Marginal Propensity to Consume (Mpc) is 0.8 and Change in Initial Investment is ₹ 1,000 Crores. - Economics

Numerical

Calculate the change in final income, if Marginal Propensity to Consume (MPC) is 0.8 and change in initial investment is ₹ 1,000 crores.

#### Solution

The marginal propensity to consume = 0.8

The change in the initial investment = Rs 1000

Multiplier K = 1/(1-MPC)

= 1/(1-0.8)

= 5

Multiplier K = "change in income"/"change in investment"

5 = "change in income"/1000

Change in income = 1000 x 5 = Rs 5000.
