In a certain economy, C represents the total amount of consumption in millions of dollars, Y represents the total national income in millions of dollars, and the relationship between these two values is given by the equation C=90+9Y/11. If the total amount of consumption in the economy increases by 99 million dollars, what is the increase in the total national income, in millions of dollars?

A.11
B.22
C.99
D.121

\(C_{old} = 90 + \frac{9Y_{old}}{11}\)

\(Y_{old} = \frac{(C_{old} - 90)*11}{9}\)

\(Y_{new} = \frac{(C_{old} + 99 - 90)*11}{9} = \frac{(C_{old} + 9)*11}{9}\)

\(Increase = Y_{new} - Y_{old} = \frac{(C_{old} + 9)*11}{9} - \frac{(C_{old} - 90)*11}{9} = \frac{99*11}{9}\)

= 121

Answer is D

\(Y_{new} = \frac{(C_{old} + 99 - 90)*11}{9} = \frac{(C_{old} + 9)*11}{9}\)

\(Increase = Y_{new} - Y_{old} = \frac{(C_{old} + 9)*11}{9} - \frac{(C_{old} - 90)*11}{9} = \frac{99*11}{9}\)

= 121

Answer is D


Ok so your thinking process was - i need to find an increase hence subtract Yold and Ynew.
I did isolated Y and then instead of C i put C+99 but wasnt aware that i should treat them as Old and New.
interesting...

\(C=90+\frac{9Y}{11}\) --> \(Y=\frac{11C}{9}-9*11\).

\(Y_1=\frac{11C}{9}-9*11\);
\(Y_2=\frac{11(C+99)}{9}-9*11=\frac{11C}{9}+11*11-9*11=(\frac{11C}{9}-9*11)+121\).

Answer: D

\(C_{old} = 90 + \frac{9Y_{old}}{11}\)

\(Y_{old} = \frac{(C_{old} - 90)*11}{9}\)

\(Y_{new} = \frac{(C_{old} + 99 - 90)*11}{9} = \frac{(C_{old} + 9)*11}{9}\)

\(Increase = Y_{new} - Y_{old} = \frac{(C_{old} + 9)*11}{9} - \frac{(C_{old} - 90)*11}{9} = \frac{99*11}{9}\)

= 121

Answer is D



I like your approach step by step, is fine. :)

But also if we do :C = 90 + 9y/11 ------> adding 99 we have 11 (C - 90 +99)/9= y -------> 11C + 99/9 = Y clearly the only value that fits is 11 * 2 + 99/9 = y. \(That is, 121\)

Ans:
C = 90 + 9y/11 , adding 99 we have 11 (C - 90 +99)/9= y , (11C + 99)/9 = Y , so the increase is Y-y=121 the answer is (D).

Just assume y=11 and C=99

Then C=198 and Y=132

So Y increases by 121

Given \(C = 90 + \frac{9Y}{11}\)
Note that C changes whenever Y changes. So if C increases by 99, it's because Y increased from Y1 to Y2.

\(\frac{9}{11}(Y2 - Y1) = 99\)
\(Y2 - Y1 = 121\)
Y increased by 121 which led to an increase of 99 in C.

hi,
lets see the equation-
\(C= 90+\frac{9}{11}y\) ..

here 90 is a constant term, so ANY increase / decrease in C will be COMPENSATED by y..
so an increase of 99 will be taken care by y..

\(99= \frac{9}{11}y\) or y=121..
D
