a. Show the consumption and saving schedules graphically.
b. Find the break-even level of income. Explain how it is possible for households to dissave at very low
income levels.
c. If the proportion of total income consumed (APC) decreases and the proportion saved (APS)
increases as income rises, explain how the MPC and MPS can be constant at various levels of income.

If disposable income were \$7400, how much would be saved?
What is the &quot;break-even&quot; level of disposable income?
