In an economy, the ratio of Average Propensity to Consume and Average Propensity to Save is 5:3. The level of income is 6000. How much are the savings? Calculate.

APC / APS = 5 / 3 and APS = 6000

APC = 5 / 8, APS = 3 / 8

Now, as, APS = S / Y or 3 / 8 = S / 6000

S = 6000 x 3 / 8

Hence, savings = 18000 / 8 = 2250
