a. Calculate Jordan's marginal rate of substitution of Gatorade for basketballs at point A, and explain in words what this number means.

Suppose now that the price of Gatorade drops to $1/bottle. Jordan's new budget constraint is represented by the line BG.

b. True or False. Explain.

Jordan's new optimum consumption bundle could fall between points B and C or between points F and G if either basketballs or Gatorade is an inferior good.
