3. 3. Prepared By:- KVS, Delhi Region Sum total of satisfaction that the consumer derives when a certain number of units of particular commodity are consumed TU=F(Qx) or TU=∑MU TOTAL UTILITY MARGINAL UTILITY It means addition to the total utility from the consumption of an one more unit of a good. Mun = TUn-TUn-1 or, Mux = ∆Tux ∕ ∆Qx
4. 4. Prepared By:- KVS, Delhi Region Assumptions of the Utility Approach • Utility can be cardinally measurable, i.e. can be expressed in exact units; • Utility is measurable in monetary terms; • Consumer’s income is given; • Prices of commodities are given & constant; • Constant Marginal Utility of Money
5. 5. Prepared By:- KVS, Delhi Region As a consumer goes on coming more and more units of a commodity the additional benefit that he derives from the additional unit of a commodity goes on falling MUx Marginal utility ( in Rs.) Quantity
6. 6. Prepared By:- KVS, Delhi Region Consumer Equilibrium It refers to a situation under which a consumer spends his entire income on purchase of a good in such a manner that gives him maximum satisfaction and he has no tendency to change it.
7. 7. Prepared By:- KVS, Delhi Region Condition of Consumer Equilibrium MUx Px =MUm where,MUx = Marginal Utility of Product ‘x’ Px = Price of ‘x’ MUm = Marginal Utility of money • MUx = MUm * Px ty of Money Marginal Utility of the good = Utility of Price paid

Price Payable−Cost. A consumer will continue to consume additional units of a commodity till the point where his marginal utility (in terms of money ) is greater than or equal to the price of the commodity. Being a rational consumer he wouldn’t pay more price for a product that gives him lesser sati
