How will purchases change when the price of videos increases from PV1 to PV2? The price increase steepens the budget constraint putting our consumer on the higher price budget with a slope of -PV2, where she can afford fewer videos for any given level of consumption of other goods.

    As the price rises we expect her to purchase fewer videos. In this particular case she chooses consumption bundle B, and reduces her consumption to VN videos.
