">A doctor who is treated a heart patient wants to presicribe medication to lowere the patients blood pressure. The body's reaction to this medication is a function of the dose admininistered. If the patient takes x milliters of the medication, his blood pressure should decrease by r=f(x) points where
f(x)=3x^21/3x^3
How much should the patients blood pressure drop if he takes 2 milliieters of medication
which i got 9.333
What is the maximum drop in blood pressure that can be achieved with this medication ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sii it would be 3(2)^21/3(2)^3=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be like 3(2)^21/3(2)^3=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They're separate parts. First you solve for x=2 and then set the derivative to zero and solve to find the dosage that gives the maximum.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Once you find the dosage, you can out that in the original equation to ge the maximum drop in pressure.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sure. \[F(2)=(3(2^{2}))\div(3(2^{3})) = 12/24 = 1/2\] Which gives us the points that he dropped by taking 2 mL of medication. This is how Hurons the max: \[F'(x)=[6x](3x ^{3})  (3x ^{2}1)[9x2] \div (3x ^{3})^{2}\] Setting that equal to zero, we get x=+1. We know it can't be negative 1 because you can't give negative medicine, so plug in one and solve to get 2/3.
