Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0consider a quadratic formula in the form: \[y=ax^2+bx+c\] where x is the number of widgets, and y is the cost of producing them, we have three points (2,30), (4,118) and (10,766).. substitute in the equation to find a, b and c..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you find a, b and c, all you have to find the cost of producing 6 widgets is to substitute x=6 and find the value of y.. that value is the cost you're looking for.
