Marginal utility 

- It is the measure of the additional satisfaction obtained from consuming one additional unit of good.

* Marginal Utility: An instance

- The marginal utility can be derived from increasing from 0 to 1 units of food may be 9

- Increasing from 1 to 2 may be 7

- Increasing from 2 to 3 may be 5

*  Observation: Marginal utility is getting diminished

* Diminishing Marginal Utility

- The principle of the diminishing marginal utility states that as more a good is used, using additional amounts will yield smaller additions to utility.
