## Homework Statement

What is the MRS of the quasilinear utility function U(q

_{1}, q

_{2}) = u(q

_{1}) + q

_{2}?

## Homework Equations

MRS = - dU

_{1}/dU

_{2}

## The Attempt at a Solution

[/B]dU

_{2}is 1 but I am unsure how to approach taking the derivative of u(q

_{1}). I have tried the answer as -dU and -dU * dq

_{1}, but neither of those are the correct answer.
