A) $4875
B) $123,000
C) $487,500
D) $12,300

    the function of sales (in $1000) f(x) is given by 75+6x where x is advertising dollars in $100.

    f(x) = 75+6x
    when advertising dollars = $800, x=8
    substituting in the above equation,
    f(x) = 75+6*8 = 123
    So sales = 123 * $1000 = ??
