the cost, c (in millions of dollars) for a software company to seize 50% of an illegal version of a gaming software that they deloped in modeled by the following function c(x)=mx/500.5x the value of m is 25. Find the lim x infC(x). Explain briefly what this limit means in terms of the given scenario

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm trying to understand what this limit means in terms of the given scenario that I had asked about. The cost, C (in millions.... I found the answers to the percentage. but I just don't understand how the answer was reached

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1very pretty :D @lynda.boyce is it like this \[\large c(x)=\dfrac{mx}{500.5x} \]

lynda.boyce

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. and then I had to find the cost of seizing 50%. 60%, 70%, 80% and 90% of the illegal software. I found the answers to those. they are200, 300, 466.67, 800, 1800, with M being 100

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1could you please post the complete question if psble take a screenshot and attach

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So you're fixing \(M=100\) for part \(b\) is it

lynda.boyce
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but b says to pick a number between 20 and 120

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oops sorry you're correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you're working part \(c\) now ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Do you know what \(\large \lim\limits_{x\to100^{\color{red}{}}}C(x)\) means ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not really. I am very math stupid. it took me forever to understand algebra to pass it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Suppose you're walking on that red line from left hand side of x=100 : dw:1434118287009:dw

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1As x approaches 100 from left hand side, the graph is shooting up insanely so you will be climbing up higher and higher, yes ? dw:1434118466475:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that means it is very Costly to seize all the illegal version

lynda.boyce
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Going up each percentage, means the cost goes up also

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since the cost is increasing without any bounds, we say the cost approaches "infinity" as the percentage approaches 100

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1mathematically we express it as : \[\large \lim\limits_{x\to100^{\color{red}{}}}C(x) = \color{red}{\infty}\]

lynda.boyce
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so basically, with the infinity, the cost will continue to rise

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what exactly do you mean by "with the infinity"

lynda.boyce
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well infinity is continuous, so no matter what the price increases as the percentage does or even if you get to 100%

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Notice that you can never get to seize 100% because it takes "infinite" cost

lynda.boyce
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the 100% is always out of reach

ganeshie8
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, from the graph it is clear that as you seize closer to 100%, the cost shoots up insanely

lynda.boyce

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I understand that now. thank you very much
