Determine the number of personal and dependency exemptions in each of the following independent situations based on 2017 tax rates (show entire calculations ): a. leo and amanda (ages 48 and 46, respectively) are married and furnish more than 50% of the support of their two children, elton (age 18) and trista (age 24). during the year, elton earns \$4,500 providing transportation for elderly persons with disabilities, and trista receives a \$5,000 scholarship for tuition at the law school she attends.b. audrey (age 45) is divorced this year. she maintains a household in which she, her ex-husband, clint, and his mother, olive, live. audrey furnishes more than 50% of the household’s support. olive is age 91 and blind. c. crystal, age 45, furnishes more than 50% of the support of her married son, andy (age 18), and his wife, paige (age 19), who live with her. during the year, andy earned \$8,200 from a part-time job. all parties live in iowa (a common law state). (assume the joint return test rule does not apply.) d. assume the same facts as in part (c), except that all parties live in washington (a community property state).

David consumes two things: gasoline (g) and bread (b). david's utility function is u(g, b) = 10g^0.25 b^0.75. use the lagrange technique to solve for david's optimal choices of gasoline and bread as a function of the price of gasoline, p_g, the price of bread, p_b, and his income m. with recent decrease in the price of gasoline (maybe due to external shock such as shale gas production) does david increase his consumption of gasoline? for david, how does partial differential g/partial differential p_g depend on his income m? that is, how does david's change in gasoline consumption due to an increase in the price of gasoline depend on his income level? to answer these questions, find the cross-partial derivative, |partial differential^2 g/partial differential m partial differential p_g.
