Week 3 Homework

Please answer the following questions:

1. The following information describes the value Lori Landlord places on having her five apartment houses repainted. She values the repainting of each apartment house at a different amount depending on how badly it needs repainting.

Value of new paint on 1st apt house $5,000

Value of new paint on 2nd apt house $4,000

Value of new paint on 3rd apt house $3,000

Value of new paint on 4th apt house $2,000

Value of new paint on 5th apt house $1,000

Plot Lori Landlord’s willingness to pay. (Note don’t worry about turning in the plotted graph, just do it on paper.)

If the price to repaint her apartments is $5,000 each, how many will she repaint? What is the value of her consumer surplus?

Suppose the price to repaint her apartments falls to $2,000 each. How many apartments will Lori choose to have repainted? What is the value of her consumer surplus?

What happened to Ms. Landlord’s consumer surplus when the price of having her apartments repainted fell? Why?

IF it costs 5,000 each, she will probably paint 1st house. Her consumer surplus is zero on that house, she got the job done for the value she gave to it.

if the price falls to 2,000 each, she will paint all except house 5.

Consumer surplus= 5000+4000+3000+2000-4*2000= 14,000-8000

When the price fell, she got "value" for what she paid.
