The cost of producing x widgets is modelled by C(x)=10sqrt(x) + 20, where C is in dollars. a)What is the rate of change of the cost with respect to (wrt) the number of units, x, being produced when the production level is 400 widgets?

Begin by taking the derivative of C(x).

and then plug in 400.

So it'd be something like 5/sqrtx --> 5/sqrt 400 = 1/4.

First derivative always gives rate of change of the value of interest/concern/focus in the problem.
