What other bundles are available to our consumer? Suppose she is considering only going out to her favorite night club, which we know she can afford 20 times annually. If she decides to go two times fewer how many evenings at the movies can she now afford?

   For each evening she doesn't go to her favorite club she frees up $60 to spend on movies. If she gives up two such evenings she now has $120 to spend on movies. This means she can go to $120 ÷ 40 = 3 movies. So, another affordable bundle for her is (3 movies, 18 night clubs).
