The formula's are not posting but I have solved the questions. I just need to know how I determine how the equation is undefined.

1. The cost, in millions of dollars, to remove x % of pollution in a lake modeled by

a. What is the cost to remove 75% of the pollutant?

b. What is the cost to remove 90 % of the pollutant?

c. What is the cost to remove 99% of the pollutant

d. For what value is this equation undefined?

e. Do the answers to sections a–d match your expectations? Why or why not?

These are not answered correctly. The correct way is to use a whole number to solve, not as a percent. You will end up with an incorrect answer using it in percent form.
