Question Group #1
Directions and/or Common Information:
The fixed weekly cost for manufacturing a commodity is $1,000. The
variable
cost for manufacturing x items is given by V(x) =
and the revenue is given by R(x) =
.
The profit P(x) is given by revenue minus cost or R(x) – (V(x) + 1000).
What is the profit
function
P(x)?
