The number of computers sold by BCC depends on the dollar amound,x, that they spend on advertising. How much must they spend to sell 200 computers? Round to the nearest dollar and do not include units in your answer.
N(x)=100+20 * In(0.25x)

N(x) = 100 + 20ln(0.25x) = 200,
100 + 20ln(0.25x) = 200,
20ln(0.25x) = 200  100 = 100,
ln(0.25x) = 5,
0.25x = e^5,
0.25x = 148.41,
X = 594. 
Annual profit in thousands of dollars is given by the function, P(x) = 200¡Ì x  3 + 10,000, where x is the number of items sold in thousands, x ¡Ý 3.
