A computer store sells approximately 300 of its most popular model per year. The manager would like to minimize her annual inventory cost by ordering the optimal numbers of computers, x, at regular intervals. If she orders x computers in each shipment, the cost of storage willl be 6x dollers, and the cost of reording will be 300/x (15x+10) dollers. The inventory cost is the sum of the storage cost and the reording cost.
use the distributive law to simplfy the expression for the rerding cost. Then express the inventory cost C as a function of x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then express the inventory cost C as a function of x:\[C(x) = 6x+{300 \over x}(15x+10) = 6x+{3000 \over x} + 45000\] is that right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0all yu do i plug 10 for x: \[C(10)=6(10)+{3000 \over 10}+45000 = ?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the stores sell aprox. 300 a year and it orders 22.36 a shipment: 300/22.36 = 13.41 i think that's the answer
