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 |
Income (Y) | 0 | 100 | 200 | 300 | 400 |
Consumption (C) | 60 | 110 | 150 | 180 | 200 |
Change in Y (Delta Y) | - | 100 | 100 | 100 | 100 |
Change in C (Delta C) | - | 50 | 40 | 30 | 20 |
MPC | - | 0.5 | 0.4 | 0.3 | 0.2 |
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.
View Answer
Income (Y) 20000
Consumption (C) 15000
Change in Y (Delta Y) 50000
Change in C (Delta C) 30000
MPC = Change in C/ Change in Y
30,000/ 50000
0.6

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

MPS + MPC = 1
0.3 + MPC = 1
MPC = 0.7

Question 1
If MPS is 0.3 and the income increases from Rs 6,000 crores to 9,000 crores, what will be the additional consumption in the economy?
View AnswerMPS = 0.3
Change in Income = 3000
Change in Consumption = ?
MPS + MPC = 1
0.3 + MPC = 1
MPC = 0.7
MPC = Change in Consumption/ Change in Income
0.7 = Change in Consumption/ 3000
2100 = Change in Consumption
Question 2
If national income is Rs 90 crore, Consumption Expenditure is Rs 81 crore,
find out average propensity to save. When income rises to Rs 100 crore
and consumption expenditure to Rs 88 crore. What will be the marginal
propensity to consume and marginal propensity to save.
View Answer1) Y = 90
C = 81
APS = ?
Y = C + S
90 = 81 + S
S = 9
APS = S/ Y
APS = 9/90
APS = 0.1
2) Y = 100
C = 88
Change in Y = 10
Change in C = 7
MPC = ?
MPS = ?
MPC = Change in C/ Change in Y
MPC = 7/10
MPC = 0.7
Y = C + S
100 = 88 + S
S = 12
Change in = 3
MPS = Change in S/ Change in Y
MPS = 3/10
MPS = 0.3
