The owners of a potato processing plant permit nearby farmers to rent their machines during the weekends. The rental fee is $50 per machine plus $30 per hour to rent the plant regardless of the number of machines used. How many machines should a farmer rent to minimize his cost for processing 25,000 bushels of potatoes if each machine can produce 75 bushels per hour?

    Should it all be part of the same equation?

    i think its supposed to be two equations. It has to do with optimization and I know i'm supposed to take the derivative of one of the equations.

    What're you working on? What's the classification of this type of problem? I could google it. I honestly am unsure of how to go about this.
