calculus The profit generated from producing and selling x floopers is given by P(x) = -0.01 x**2 + 50 x - 8000 dollars. Find the marginal profit when 4000 floopers are being produced

marginal profit is given by P'(x) what do you have for the derivative of P(x) ?

that's all they gave me

I'm not asking you to give me more info, I'm asking you to take the derivative of P(x) to find the marginal profit function P'(x)

oh ok

does that mean you don't know how to take the derivative of P(x) ?

I know how I was just moving to a different problem since you left the question
anonymous
  • anonymous
but im finding the deriv now

f'(x) = -0.0001x+50

the first term is wrong -0.01x^2 derivative is -0.01(2x)=-0.02x
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh the x is by itself

  • anonymous
i multiplied 2 and o.oo1
TuringTest
  • TuringTest
you wrote -0.01x^2 in the problem in any event, find the derivative and then plug in the given value f'(4000)=?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so f'(x)= -0.01(4000)+50
anonymous
  • anonymous
equals the answer
TuringTest
  • TuringTest
I'm not sure, you told me the function was a few different things, but at least the idea is right: find derivative, plug in number

ok thanx
