### Describe in Detail

From the following information about economy, calculate (I) its equilibrium level of national income and (ii) saving at equilibrium level of national income.

Consumption function: C = 200 + 0.9 Y

(Where C = consumption expenditure and Y = national income)

Investment expenditure: I = 3000.

### Explanation

(i) its equilibrium level of national income

Y = C + I

Y = 200 + 0.9Y + 3000

Y-0.9Y = 3200

Y= =32000

(ii) saving at equilibrium level of national income

Y = C + I

32000 = C + 3000

C = 32000 – 3000

C =
