a) calculate autonomous aggregate demand
<br>C = 350 + 0.75(Y-T) - 200*5.75% =350 + 0.75(Y-200) - 11.5
<br>C = 350 + 0.75(Y-T) - 200r =350 + 0.75Y-150 - 200r
<br>C = 188.5 + 0.75Y
<br>And I = 200 - 500r =200 - 500*5.75%= 171.25
<br>autonomous aggregate demand is
<br>AD=C+I+G+NX=188.5 + 0.75Y+171.25+250+50= 659.75 + 0.75Y
<br>then ...
