Suppose the revenue from producing and selling x units of a given product is given by R(x)=10x-0.02x^2
a) Find the number of units produced if the revenue is $800.

I really need help with this, I don't know what to do?

  • Calculus -

    just set R(x) = 800

    800 = 10x - .02x^2
    .02x^2 - 10x + 800 = 0

    using the quad formula

    x = (10 ± √36)/.04 , ahhh it would have factored
    = (10 ± 6)/.04
    = 400 or 100 units

  • Calculus -

    The answer that I have to this question is 1000 units, I am confused.

  • Calculus -

    sub in your answer
    R(1000) = 10(1000) - .02(1000)^2 = -10 000

    my answers
    R(400) = 10(400) - .02(400)^2 = 800
    R(100) = 10(100) - .02(100)^2 = 800

    Why are you confused?

    how did you possible get 1000?

  • Calculus -

    I know I am getting the answer as you did, but the solution that I have with the question that says 1000
