when no more than 110 units are produced, the cost of producing x units is given by
C(x)=.2x^3  25x^2 + 1531x + 25,000
How many units should be produced in order to have the lowest possible average cost?

C '(x) = .6x^2  50x + 1531
= 0 for a max/min of C
solve using the quadratic formula
This quadratic has no real roots, I will leave it up to you to interpret that result.

I took the derivative.
Is this not from a Calculus course ?
