Question

The revenue function of a company is given by R(x)=-2x^2+25x+150, the cost function is given by C(x)=13x+100

a. Find the marginal cost and marginal revenue function.

b. Find the production level x where the profit is maximized. Then find the maximum profit.

Answer #1

**Requirement (a):**

Marginal Cost function = Derivative of x for C(x) = 13X + 100
i.e. 13 [* MC(x) = 13*]

Marginal Revenue Function = Derivative of x for R(x) = -2x^2 +
25x + 150 i.e. -4x + 25 [* MR(x) = -4x +
25*]

**Requirement (b):**

Profit is maximum at a level where marginal revenue is equal to marginal cost (MR = MC)

i.e. -4x + 25 = 13

-4x = 13 - 25

-4x = -12

x = 3

**The production level at which profit is maximum is 3
units**

Revenue : R(x=3) = -[2*(3^2)] + (25 * 3) + 150

R (3) = -18 + 75 + 150

R (3) = 207

Cost : C(x=3) = (13 * 3) + 100

C (3) = 139

Maximum Profit = R (x=3) - C (x=3)

= 207 - 139 i.e. 68

**The maximum profit is $68.**

The cost function for producing x items is C(x) =
45000 + 25x - 0.10x^2. The revenue function R(x) = 750 -
0.60x^2.
a.Determine the production cost for the first 500 items.
b.The marginal cost function.
c.How fast is the cost growing when production is at 500
units.
d.The average cost per item for the first 500 items.
e.The marginal revernue function R'(x).
f.The profit function.
g.The marginal profit function.
h.What production level maximizes revenue.

Consider that for ‘x’ units
sold, the total REVENUE function is : R(x) =
75x2– 15x
– 200 and the total COST function is :
C(x) = 750 + 25x –
100 √ x.
(b)
Also determine values of (i) Marginal Revenue when x= 25
and (ii) MP(25), where marginal Revenue is
defined as derivative of Revenue function and MP(x) =
P'(x).

The marginal revenue of a company is given by
r(x)=x^3-0.3x^2+0.1 and the marginal cost is given by
c(x)=x\sqrt{-x^2+100} both measured in thousands of dollars per
hundred units (x) produced. Find the total profit for x=1 to x=4
hundred units produced.

The revenue and cost functions for a particular product are
given below. The cost and revenue are given in dollars, and
x represents the number of units .
R(x) = −0.2x2 + 146x
C(x) = 66x + 7980

(b) What is the maximum revenue?
(c) Find the profit function.

(e) What is the maximum profit?...

The cost function for a certain company is C = 20x + 700 and the
revenue is given by R = 100x − 0.5x2. Recall that profit is revenue
minus cost. Set up a quadratic equation and find two values of x
(production level) that will create a profit of $700.

A manufacturing company of a certain product has a fixed cost of
$40 and a variable cost of 2x^3+13x, what is the total cost
function and the cost to produce 50 of these products? What is the
marginal cost when x =
50?
At what level of output will average cost per unit
be a minimum? What is this
minimum?
If the demand price for this product is set
at d(x) = -x^2+49, determine the amount of production...

The cost of producing a plastic toy is given by the function
C(x) = 8x + 25, where x is the number of hundreds of toys. The
revenue from toy sales is given by R(x) = −x2 + 120x − 360. Since
profit = revenue − cost, the profit function must be P(x) = −x2 +
112x − 385 (verify). How many toys sold will produce the maximum
profit? What is the maximum profit?

Cost, revenue, and profit are in dollars and x is the number of
units. A firm knows that its marginal cost for a product is MC = 3x
+ 30, that its marginal revenue is MR = 70 − 5x, and that the cost
of production of 60 units is $7,380. (a) Find the optimal level of
production. units (b) Find the profit function. P(x) = (c) Find the
profit or loss at the optimal level. There is a of...

A manufacturer has determined that the revenue from the sale of
tiles is given by R(x) = 34x – 0.03x2 dollars. The cost
of producing x tiles in C(x) = 10,500 + 55x dollars. Find the
profit function and any break-even points? Find P(200), P(400), and
P(600)? Find the marginal profit function, P¢(x)? Find P¢(200),
P¢(400), P¢(600)? draw the graph of P(x) and P¢(x) and explain both
graphs.
