A company that makes thing-a-ma-bobs has a start up cost of $ 1399. It costs the company $ 1.87 to make each thing-a-ma-bob. The company charges $ 5.89 for each thing-a-ma-bob. Let x denote the number of thing-a-ma-bobs produced.
1. Write the cost function for this company. C(x) =2052
2. Write the revenue function for this company. R(x) =2056
3. What is the minumum number of thing-a-ma-bobs that the company must produce and sell to make a profit? = 349
I got part 3 right but no part 1&2 what did i do wrong?
1. 1399 + 1.87x
3. 589x - (1399 + 1.87x) > 0
You did not follow the last sentence of the instructions.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
