The marginal cost of manufacturing x yards of a certain fabric is C'(x) = 3 − 0.01x + 0.000012x2 (in dollars per yard). Find the increase in cost if the production level is raised from 2000 yards to 4000 yards. $186,000

calculate C' = dC/dx at x = 2000 then dC = C' dx dC = C' (4000-2000) C' = 3 - 20 + 40 = 23 dC = 23 (2000) = 46,000

58,000

both answers are wrong correct answer = $170,000
