For the following exercises, enter the expressions into your graphing utility and find the zeroes to the equation (the x -intercepts) by using 2 nd CALC 2:zero. Recall finding zeroes will ask left bound (move your cursor to the left of the zero,enter), then right bound (move your cursor to the right of the zero,enter), then guess (move your cursor between the bounds near the zero, enter). Round your answers to the nearest thousandth.

Suppose that an equation is given p = −2 x 2 + 280 x 1000 , where x represents the number of items sold at an auction and p is the profit made by the business that ran the auction. How many items sold would make this profit a maximum? Solve this by graphing the expression in your graphing utility and finding the maximum using 2 nd CALC maximum. To obtain a good window for the curve, set x [0,200] and y [0,10000].

The cost function for a certain company is C = 60 x + 300 and the revenue is given by R = 100 x 0.5 x 2 . Recall that profit is revenue minus cost. Set up a quadratic equation and find two values of x (production level) that will create a profit of $300.

The quadratic equation would be ( 100 x −0.5 x 2 ) ( 60 x + 300 ) = 300. The two values of x are 20 and 60.

what is the formula for calculating algebraic
Propessor Reply
I think the formula for calculating algebraic is the statement of the equality of two expression stimulate by a set of addition, multiplication, soustraction, division, raising to a power and extraction of Root. U believe by having those in the equation you will be in measure to calculate it
