The monthly cost C of producing x widgets (in dollars) is modeled by the function shown below.
C(x) =2500 + 4.8x + 0.002x^2
In this model 2500 represents fixed monthly costs and 4.8 is the individual cost of each unit being produced. The term 0.002x^2 represents additional costs that are significant only when the production level x is large. Such costs might include additional machinery, timeandahalf pay, etc. If the maximum monthly cost the company can sustain is $10,500, determine the maximum production level. Round your answer down to the next whole number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1C= cost x= widgets so you should substitute C for $10,500 solve for x
