yes, post your problem
The company discovered that it costs $28 to produce 2 camera cases, $50 to produce 4 camera cases, and $140 to produce 10 camera cases. Using the quadratic function, find the cost of producing 12 cameras.
ok lets liken this to acceleration. You are in a car. You see that you went 28 yards in 2 seconds. 50 yards in 4 seconds and 140 yards in 10 seconds. What is your acceleration?
wait, are you sure that it costs $140 to produce 10 camera cases?
okay then scrap the acceleration analogy.
ill get back to you with this one.
say actual cost of production per camera case is X
and cost of materials to build camera is Z
and wastage is y. Then we can say total production cost P = -YC^2+XC-Z where C is the number of cameras.
so plug in the three values of production cost and number of camera cases in the equation above and solve for X,Y and Z
or, lets say the quadratic equation to define the number of camera cases was P = ax^2+bx+c , where x is the number of cases and P is the total production cost. plug in the three values of P and x. and solve for a,b,c. three equations three unknowns. easy as pie.
