just replace x by the percentage value

e.g. for 75% removal

cost = 6000/(200-2(75))

= 120

do the same for the others

as to D) when is the denominator zero?

when 200-2x = 0

for when x = 100

so mathematically you could never pay enough to remove 100% of the pollutants.

BTW, I don't see why the function was not reduced to c = 3000/(100-x) ?

Did the text state it this way?
