Anyone know how to do this problem?
The marginal cost of producing the xth box of light bulbs is
3 + x^2/1,000
dollars. Determine how much is added to the total cost by a change in production from x = 40 to x = 100 boxes.

i didnt see whatchloropyl have done do you have the link? any way is this correct 3 + (x^2/1,000) or maybe this is (3 + x^2)/1,000

This is actually under the chapter of the "definite integral: fundamental theorem of calculus" so I am guessing I have to incorporate that somewhere :/

Total Cost is Integral of Marginal Cost! => Integrate from 40 to 100

The difference between 40 and 100 boxes is the added cost!

total cost = integral of marginal cost marginal cost = integral (3 + x^2/1,000) ? can you start this ? what did you get?

is it [3x+ x^3/3(1000)] from 40 to 100 =?
