The unit price of manufacturing a product is P=2000.01x where x is the number of units produced. assuming all units are sold.
a. what value of production (units) will yield a maximum sales?
b. what is the value of maximum sales?
c. what is the unit price at maximum sales level?
plss. help thank you

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If we define x as the number of units produced, we the receive that the total production cost is: \[xP=200x0.01x^2\]So, we find the maxima of this curve, one way to do this is differentiation, although your teacher may have taught you a few others: \[ (xP)'=2000.02x=0\\ x=10000 \]Which means that, we have minimized the cost per unit at this point. (A) the value of sales is \[10000P(x)=10000\cdot(20010000\cdot0.01)=10^6\]Which is our answer to B. And, as the previous, we simply take \[ P(x)=2000.01\cdot10000=100 \] For C.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sales = price * num of units sales = P(x) * x sales = 200x  .01x^2 this is a parabola...to get maximum, find vertex y = .01x^2 +200x + 0 x_coord of vertex = b/2a where a,b,c are coefficients x = 200/.02 = 10,000 plug this in to get y_coord of vertex

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you don't, you @dumbcow 's way to find the maxima works equally as well.
