    How do you find Altitude and slope slope is the derivative of a function: for ex. if you have f(x)=x^2 + x, at point (1,2) f'(x)=2x+1 your slope is 2(1) + 1 = 3 =m to find the equation is y-y1=m(x-x1) so you have: y-2=3(x-1) gives you: 3x-1 is your

    Economists use production functions to describe how output of a system varies with another variable such as labour or capital. For example, the production function P(L) = 200L + 10L^2 - L^3 goves the output of a system as a function of the number of
