More on Roy’**s** Identity | もっとロア**の**恒等式
Roy’**s** identity says that the consumer’**s** Marshallian demand for good i is
simply the ratio of the partial derivatives of indirect utility with respect to p i
and ω after a sign change.

6. Question 6 (**10** points)
We say that a preference relation % is homothetic if x % y implies x % y for all 0.
Show that if a consumer has a homothetic preference relation, then her demand function is homogeneous of degree one in !. That is, x(p; !) = x(p; !) for any > 0. 7. Question 7 (20 points)

(a) Show that if u(x **1** , x 2 ) and v(x **1** , x 2 ) are both homogeneous of degree r, then
**s** (x **1** , x 2 ) := u(x **1** , x 2 ) + v(x **1** , x 2 ) is also homogeneous of degree r.
(b) Show that if u(x **1** , x 2 ) and v(x **1** , x 2 ) are quasi-concave, then m(x **1** , x 2 ) :=
min{u(x **1** , x 2 ), v(x **1** , x 2 )} is also quasi-concave.

Ann and Bob are in an Italian restaurant, and the owner offers them a free 3- slice pizza under the following condition. Ann and Bob must simultaneously and independently announce how many slice(**s**) she/he would like: Let a and b be the amount of pizza requested by Ann and Bob, respectively (you can assume that a and b are integer numbers between **1** and 3). If a + b ≤ 3, then each player gets her/his requested demands (and the owner eats any leftover slices). If a + b > 3, then both players get nothing. Assume that each players payoff is equal to the number of slices of pizza; that is, the more the better.
