1 case costs $18.67 cents; if I did it right... and I have my doubts with it cause of all the fractions, but thats my best guess :)

Another approach to this problem is to use a curve fitting program. The general form of a quadratic equation is: y(x) = a*x^2 + b*x + c. Given a set of data, the curve fitting program will calculate the optimum values for the constants a, b and c using a "least squares" method. Refer to: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/LeastSquaresFitting.html Let y(x) be equal to the cost to produce a batch of x camera cases. From three direct measurements the company had determined that the cost to produce a batch of 4, 7 and 12 camera cases was 45, 257 and 792 dollars respectively. The company wants to know the approximate cost to produce 1 case based on their past production experience. The following Mathematica 8 statement will compute the values for a, b and c for this problem. Fit[{{4, 45}, {7, 257}, {12, 792}}, {1, x, x^2}, x] If the reader has no access to Mathematica 8, then copy and past the above into the "=" input box at www.WolframAlpha.com

The result is 4.54167 x^2 + 20.7083 x -110.5 and evaluated at x=1 is -85.25 If the numbers above are rationalized,that is, made into fractions, the f[x] can be written as: \[ \frac{109}{24}x{}^{\wedge}2+\frac{497}{24}x-\frac{221}{2} \] Refer to the attachment, CameraCase.pdf, which is a plot of f(x). The plot shows that any batch less than 4 is a looser.
