Given the utility function

U(C,T) = 3C+2T

A budget constraint of $50, C = coffee which is $2 a cup, and T = tea which is $1.25 a cup, what is the optimal consumption bundle, and maximum utility possible?

Also derive an expression for the demand curve for coffee given the price of tea and the budget constraint.
