  1. I think I am reading this wrong but this may not be a Calculus question.

    <= means less than or equal to
    >= means greater than or equal to

    Rates
    20*x 0 < x < 50
    20-0.02*x 50 <= x <= 600

    When buying 1-49 articles, it is $20 per article.
    When buying 50-600 articles, it is $(20-.02*x).
    As you buy more, the cheaper it gets until you reach 600, then it maintains at that cost which is $8 dollars per article.
