2. Suppose Fred has a utility function of the form U = X ½ Y ½ . Fred has an income of \$100, good X costs \$1.00, and good Y costs \$2.00. How much of good X and how much or good Y will Fred buy?

Ive already drawn my graph. i know that fred could buy 100 of x only and 50 of y only under his budget constraint. i know the slop is -2 but i cannot figure out how to calculate for good X and Y
