However, although u (x) is strictly positive for most values of x, it is zero whenever x = π + 2πk, k = 0, 1, 2, . . 9. Budget set, B = {x | x ∈ Rn+ , p · x ≤ y}, in the case of two commodities. x2 y/p 2 B Ϫp 1 p 2 y/p 1 x1 the budget constraint. t. p · x ≤ y. 5) Note that if x∗ solves this problem, then u(x∗ ) ≥ u(x) for all x ∈ B, which means that x∗ x for all x ∈ B. 4). The converse is also true. We should take a moment to examine the mathematical structure of this problem. As we have noted, under the assumptions on preferences, the utility function u(x) is realvalued and continuous.

Because t ∈ (0, 1), we can multiply the first of these by t, the second by (1 − t), and preserve the inequalities to obtain tp1 ·x > ty1 and (1 − t)p2 · x > (1 − t)y2 . Adding, we obtain (tp1 + (1 − t)p2 ) · x > ty1 + (1 − t)y2 32 CHAPTER 1 or pt ·x > yt . But this final line says that x∈B / t , contradicting our original assumption. We must conclude, t therefore, that if x ∈ B , then x ∈ B1 or x ∈ B2 for all t ∈ [0, 1]. By our previous argument, we can conclude that v(p, y) is quasiconvex in (p, y).

It will suffice, then, to show that our supposition on the budget sets is correct. We want to show that if x ∈ Bt , then x ∈ B1 or x ∈ B2 for all t ∈ [0, 1]. If we choose either extreme value for t, Bt coincides with either B1 or B2 , so the relations hold trivially. It remains to show that they hold for all t ∈ (0, 1). Suppose it were not true. Then we could find some t ∈ (0, 1) and some x ∈ Bt such that x∈B / 1 and x∈B / 2 . If x∈B / 1 and x∈B / 2 , then p1 ·x > y1 and p2 ·x > y2 , respectively.
