C(x)=0.2(0.01x^2+132)

How many units?

- math -
**Steve**, Monday, November 5, 2012 at 3:41pmC(x) is the total cost for x units, so the average cost is C(x)/x per unit.

A(x) = C(x)/x = 0.2(0.01x + 132/x)

to minimize A(x), find where dA/dx = 0

dA/dx = 0.2(0.01 - 132/x^2)

dA/dx = 0 when x = 20√33 = 114.89 = 115
