    Suppose that Emilyhas £10 which she wishes to spend on her weekly purchase of packs of crisps andchocolate bars. Going to the store she finds that a pack of crisps costs £2 anda chocolate bar also costs £2. Learning this, she decides to buy 3 packs ofcrisps and 2 chocolate bars. Considering that this is her optimal choice givenher current budget and preferences, would she be better or worse off or thesame if the prices changed to £1.60 for a pack of crisps and £2.60 for achocolate bar? Explain and illustrate your answer graphically using theindifference analysis.

    I've come to A conclusion, but I'm not sure if it's right, and I don't particularly want to begin writing about the wrong thing. This is my first assignment at university and I feel quite out of my depth, so any help would be appreciated>
    Cheers!
