    I assume by two sector you mean house hold sector and business sector.

    In this case use the accounting identity Y=C+I+G





    If G=0 then Y=600. Output is equal to income. So income is then equal to 600

    The savings function is S=Y-C-G so S= Y-(100+(8/10)Y)=600-(100+(8/10)600)=20

    MPC=dC(y)/dy =.8
