Solution

The expenditure Ec of a person with income x is given by 

`Ec = [0.0006]x^2 + [0.003]x` 

So, marginal propensity to consume (MPC) = `d E_c/(dl)` 

∴ MPC =` (d E_c)/d_x= 2 (0.0006) x +
(0.003)` 

= 0.0012 x + 0.003
MPC at  x = 200 is 

=`0.0012(200)+0.003`

=`0.24+0.003`

=`0.243`

As MPC + MPS = 1
MPS = 1 – MPC
= 1 – 0.0243
= 0.757 

Now APC=`E_c/x` 

= 0.0006 x + 0.003
At x = 200
APC = 0.0006 × 200 + 0.003
= 0.12 + 0.003
= 0.123
As APS = 1 – APC
= 1 – 0.123
= 0.877
