and small homes was c(x)=36000+36000x+750x^2


a) write down the revenue equation for large homes and find the profit equation
b)find the marginal profit for both large and small homes if they were to sell one additional homes
c)graph both cost and revenue for large homes

asked by joe
  1. If there are x large and y small homes, then

    R(x,y) = 250000x + 150000y
    The cost is
    C(x,y) = (56000x+50000x+1000x^2)+(36000+36000y+750y^2)

    The profit is thus
    P(x,y) = R(x,y)-C(x,y)

    If you just want figures for large homes, set y=0.
