Bridget has a limited income and consumes only wine and cheese; her current consumption choice is four bottles of wine and 10 pounds of cheese. The price of wine is $10 per bottle and the price of cheese is $4 per pound. The last bottle of wine added 50 units to Bridget's utility, while the las pound of cheese added 40 units
a. Is Bridget making the utilitymaximizing choice, Why or Why not?
b. If not, what should she do instead?

Math 
PsyDAG,
I'm not sure what these utility units are, but think of the following:
$10 bottle of wine = 50
This is $.20/unit.
$4 of cheese = 40
This is $.10/unit.
Does this help with your problem?
