Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1does that mean you don't know how to take the derivative of P(x) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you wrote 0.01x^2 in the problem in any event, find the derivative and then plug in the given value f'(4000)=?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so f'(x)= 0.01(4000)+50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'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
