just replace x by the percentage value
e.g. for 75% removal
cost = 6000/(2002(75))
= 120
do the same for the others
as to D) when is the denominator zero?
when 2002x = 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/(100x) ?
Did the text state it this way?
