Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Pi = MC squared + the radius of pathagorean theorum divided by the square root of exponent X

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its correct assuming you buy more than 100 chips, otherwise, no

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3you can define the cost function with the restricted domains

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0also you should usee p instead of n, as the question asked for that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3you'll need to give C no matter what amount is purchased though...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm wondering if they also want it for under 100. Then you'd have two piecewise functions. c(n)=2n, n≤100 c(n) = 200+1.75(n100) when n>100

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But the first part... would they want that as well?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's just a line. First, get it in slopeintercept form. c(n) = 200+1.75(n100) = 200 +1.75n  175 c(n)=1.75n +25 Your yintercept is 25. Your slope is 1.75.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3just in case, because the problem did not state that they'll aways buy more than 100 chips, the function should look like this:dw:1333233617956:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@dpaInc That's what I was thinking too. It's better safe than sorry if they don't specify "over 100 chips"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Should be integers I think.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since you can't have half of a chip :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for the piecewise function theres an implied domain of [0, infinity) because you wouldn't purchase negative chips

Dockworker

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but you could purchase 0, and as brinethery said, you'd want to restrict it to integers

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you could just say all whole numbers
