## Homework Statement

I must "maximize utility". This is done when the slope of -px/py = -MUx/MUy.

MUx = (1/4x^-2/3)(y^2/5)

MUy = (2/4x^1/3)(y^-1/5)

Budget line: 80 = 7x + 2y

## Homework Equations

MUx = (1/4x^-2/3)(y^2/5)

MUy = (2/4x^1/3)(y^-1/5)

Budget line: 80 = 7x + 2y

## The Attempt at a Solution

-px/py = -7/2

Thus, I must find when MUx/MUy = -7/2. I don't need the actual answer, just wondering how I would do this?
