For Solving the Questions, we need to Remember following formulas

Income = Consumption + Savings

Y = C + S

MPC = Change in Consumption/ Change in Income

MPC = Delta C/Delta Y

MPS = Change in Savings/ Change in Income

MPS = Delta S/Delta Y

Example 4

Calculate MPC from the following schedule:

Income (Y) 0 100 200 300 400
Consumption (C) 60 110 150 180 200
View Answer

Example 5

The level of income, in an economy, increases from ₹ 20,000 crores to ₹ 70,000 crores, and as a result the level of consumption increases from ₹ 15,000 crores to ₹ 45,000 crores.

Calculate the MPC.

Income increases from 20,000 to 70,000

Level of consumption increases from 15,000 to 45,000

Calculate MPC.

Example 6

Calculate the value of MPS from the given table:

Income 100 200 300 400 500
Savings 15 40 70 110 160

Calculate MPS

Example 3(v) 

When income rises from ₹ 1,000 to ₹ 1,100, saving rise by ₹ 30. Find out MPS and MPC.

Income rises from Rs1000 to Rs1,100

Savings rise by Rs 30.

Calculate MPC and MPS

Example 7

Complete the following table:

Level of Income (₹)  400  500  600  700 
Consumption Expenditure (R)  240  320  395  465 
MPC 
MPS 

In this question, we are given Income (Y) as well as Consumption Expenditure (C )

We need to calculate MPC and MPS

For this we will do following steps

Step 1                   Calculate Savings (Income - Consumption Exp)

Step 2                   Calculate increase in Consumption, Increase in Savings and Income

Step 3                   Calculate MPC and MPS

60 

In this question, we are given Income (Y) as well as Savings (S )

We need to calculate MPC and APS

For this we will do following steps

Step 1           Calculate Consumption (Income - Savings = Consumption)

Step 2           Calculate increase in Consumption and Increase in Income (increase in Savings not required)

Step 3           Calculate MPC (Increase in Consumption/ Increase in Income)

Step 4           Calculate APS (Savings/ Income)

Example 12 Part 1

In this question, We are given 2 sets of Income (Y) and Consumption Expenditure (C )

We need to do following Steps

 

Step 1 Calculate Savings (Savings = Income - Consumption Exp (S = Y - C)

Step 2 Calculate Change in Income, Savings and Consumption Exp

Step 3 Calculate APS

Income (Y) Consumption Exp (C ) Savings (S) APS (S/Y)
80 64 16 0.2
100 78 22  

Example 12 Part 1

In this question, We are given Income (Y) and Consumption Expenditure (C )

We need to calculate APS

 

Step 1 Calculate Savings (Savings = Income - Consumption Exp (S=Y-C)

Savings + Consumption = Income

               1. Savings + 64 = 80

                   Savings = 16

Step 2 Calculate APS = Savings/ Income = S/I

APS = Savings/ Income

APS = 16/80

APS = 0.2

Example 12 Part 2

In this question, We are given Income (Y) and Consumption Expenditure (C )

We need to calculate APC and MPC

For this, we need to calculate Increase in Consumption and Increase in Income

Income (Y) Consumption Exp (C ) Savings (S) APS (S/Y) APC (C/Y) Increase in Income (Delta Y) Increase in Consumption Exp (Delta C) MPC (Delta C/Delta Y)
80 64 16 0.2    -  -  -
100 78 22   0.78 20 14 0.7
