Write the cost function:

C=20t + 3.50(1+(x^2/600)) gives cost as a function of time and speed. But distance, is related to speed x and time, so time= distance/speed or

Cost= 20 *300/x + 3.50(1+(x^2/600)) so now cost is a function of speed.

minimize cost as a function of speed (set first derivative equal to zero).

check my math.
