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 last pound of cheese added 40 units.
Is bridget making the utility-maximizing choice? Why or why not?
If not, what should she do instead? Why?

Am I on the right track.
i believe the answer is no, but I am not sure if the philosphy holds true.
50=(10,4) + 40= (10,4)
Am i going in the right direction?
