a) put income on the xaxis, consumption (and savings) on the yaxis. At x=100 and y=150 put a dot. At x=200 and y=200 put another dot. Repeat for 300 and 400. Connect the dots.
b) slope is rise over run. With each 100 increase in income (run), consumption goes up by 50 (rise). So, 50/100 = .5 = slope
c) repeat for savings
