Only for Kaffeine, easy one first.
The cost to run a vehicle is a + v^2/a dollars per hour where v is the average speed of the vehicle in km/h. Show thatt the cost for a trip of Dkm is lowest if the vehicle travels at v=a km/h

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay sorry, the stupid thing said server lost connection C = a + v2/a => dc/dv = 0 + 2v/a => dc/dv = 2v/a => 2v /a = 0 2v = 0(a) v = 0 => d2c / dv2 = d/v(2v/a)= 2/a (Postive value so cost is lowest for all values of v ) ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nobody is criticizing you, i just find it weird that you can solve problems i give you, that are straight from calc 2, but you cant solve this one

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6Time to travel D km T = D / S = D / V (hours) Cost to travel D km C = T * ( a + v^2/a ) = D / v ( a + v^2 / a ) = D ( a/v + v/a) dC / dt = D( a/v^2 + 1/a) = 0 a/v^2 + 1/a = 0 1/a = a/v^2 v^2 = a^2 > a km/h check for minimum: (using second derivative) d^2C/dt^2 = D(2a/v^3 + 0) = D * 2a/a^3 = 2D/a^2 > 0 yes, the cost at v=a is the lowest. Therefore v=a km/h for lowest cost.
