ⓘ Marginal value
A marginal value is
 the change in a value associated with a specific change in some independent variable, whether it be of that variable or of a dependent variable, or
 a value that holds true given particular constraints,
 the ratio of the change of a dependent variable to that of the independent variable.
This third case is actually a special case of the second.
In the case of differentiability, at the limit, a marginal change is a mathematical differential, or the corresponding mathematical derivative.
These uses of the term" marginal” are especially common in economics, and result from conceptualizing constraints as borders or as margins. The sorts of marginal values most common to economic analysis are those associated with unit changes of resources and, in mainstream economics, those associated with infinitesimal changes. Marginal values associated with units are considered because many decisions are made by unit, and marginalism explains unit price in terms of such marginal values. Mainstream economics uses infinitesimal values in much of its analysis for reasons of mathematical tractability.
1.1. Quantified conception Discrete change
If the value of x i {\displaystyle x_{i}} is discretely changed from x i, 0 {\displaystyle x_{i,0}} to x i, 1 {\displaystyle x_{i,1}} while other independent variables remain unchanged, then the marginal value of the change in x i {\displaystyle x_{i}} is
Δ x i = x i, 1 − x i, 0 {\displaystyle \Delta x_{i}=x_{i,1}x_{i,0}}and the" marginal value” of y {\displaystyle y} may refer to
Δ y = f − f {\displaystyle \Delta y=f\leftx_{1},x_{2},\ldots,x_{i,1},\ldots,x_{n}\rightf\leftx_{1},x_{2},\ldots,x_{i,0},\ldots,x_{n}\right}or to
Δ y Δ x = f − f x i, 1 − x i, 0 {\displaystyle {\frac {\Delta y}{\Delta x}}={\frac {f\leftx_{1},x_{2},\ldots,x_{i,1},\ldots,x_{n}\rightf\leftx_{1},x_{2},\ldots,x_{i,0},\ldots,x_{n}\right}{x_{i,1}x_{i,0}}}}1.2. Quantified conception Example
If an individual saw her income increase from $50000 to $55000 per annum, and part of her response was to increase yearly purchases of amontillado from 2 casks to three casks, then
 the marginal increase in her income was $5000
 the marginal effect on her purchase of amontillado was an increase of 1 cask, or of 1 cask per $5000.
1.3. Quantified conception Infinitesimal margins
If infinitesimal values are considered, then a marginal value of x i {\displaystyle x_{i}} would be d x i {\displaystyle dx_{i}}, and the" marginal value” of y {\displaystyle y} would typically refer to
∂ y ∂ x i = ∂ f ∂ x i {\displaystyle {\frac {\partial y}{\partial x_{i}}}={\frac {\partial f\leftx_{1},x_{2},\ldots,x_{n}\right}{\partial x_{i}}}}For a linear functional relationship y = a + b ⋅ x {\displaystyle y=a+b\cdot x}, the marginal value of y {\displaystyle y} will simply be the coefficient of x {\displaystyle x} in this case, b {\displaystyle b} and this will not change as x {\displaystyle x} changes. However, in the case where the functional relationship is nonlinear, say y = a ⋅ b x {\displaystyle y=a\cdot b^{x}}, the marginal value of y {\displaystyle y} will be different for different values of x {\displaystyle x})
1.4. Quantified conception Example
Assume that, in some economy, aggregate consumption is wellapproximated by
C = C Y {\displaystyle C=C\leftY\right}where
 Y {\displaystyle Y} is aggregate income.
Then the marginal propensity to consume is
M P C = d C d Y {\displaystyle MPC={\frac {dC}{dY}}} diminishing marginal utility is at the heart of the explanation of numerous economic phenomena, including time preference and the value of goods .
 Marginalism is a theory of economics that attempts to explain the discrepancy in the value of goods and services by reference to their secondary, or marginal
 The marginal value theorem MVT is an optimality model that usually describes the behavior of an optimally foraging individual in a system where resources

 In economics, the marginal product of labor MPL is the change in output that results from employing an added unit of labor. It is a feature of the production
