(Px – 20) (100 – 2 Px + Pyg)

Differentiating with respect to P we get

100 – 4Px + Pyg + 40 = 0

I don't understand how this is calc... whenever I multiply through and take the deriv I get another answer. Do you first multiply Px through then 20??

Pyg will be treated as a constant.

It doesn'matter how you multiply it out.

Px*100-2Px^2+PxPyg-2000+40Px+20Pyg=f

100-4Px+Pyg+40=0

• math -

How do the 2000 and 20pyg cancel out...the first pyg is still there?

explain and demonstrate how to change 4/20 into a percent there are two ways we can work this out 4/20 times by 5 overall to get it out of 100, becomes 20/100. or you can do 4/20 then times that by 10 or 20 x what = 100?
