1. The cost, in millions of dollars, to remove x % of pollution in a lake modeled by C=6000/(200-2x)

**helper**, Saturday, January 22, 2011 at 5:27pmC = 6000/(200 - 2x)

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

C = 6000/(200 - 150)

C = 6000/50

C = 120 mil

120,000,000 million

or, is it

C = 6000/(200 - 2(.75))

C = 6000/(200 - 1.5)

C = 6000/198.5

C = 30.2267 mil

30,226,700 million

I think it's the first, but I am not a tutor
