## Step 1- introduction

Total utility is the total utility that a consumer receives after consuming all goods. Marginal utility is the utility that a consumer receives after consuming additional good. In the table above, you need to calculate the total and marginal utility of cheeseburgers and french fries. Marginal utility is equal to the change in total utility divided by the change in quantity.

## Step 2- Explanation

The total utility of the third cheeseburger is $48\left(36+12=48\right)$, the fourth cheeseburger is $\left(48+8=56\right)$, and the fifth cheeseburger is $\left(56+4=60\right)$. The marginal utility of the first cheeseburger is role="math" localid="1651853457906" $\left(20-0=20\right)$ and the marginal utility of the second cheeseburger is $\left(36-20=16\right).$ ### Want to see more solutions like these?
