  1. (18 pts)

The cost, in dollars, for a company to produce x widgets is given by C(x) = 6x+ 3600 for

x³ 0, and the price-demand function, in dollars per widget, is p(x) = 50- 0.02x for 0 £x£ 2500.


In Quiz 2, problem #10, we saw that the profit function for this scenario is:


P(x) = – 0.02x2 + 44x -3600


(a) The profit function is a quadratic function and so its graph is a parabola.


Does the parabola open up or down (explain why)? __________


(b) Find the vertex of the profit function P(x) using algebra. Show algebraic work.


(c) State the maximum profit and the number of widgets which yield that maximum profit:


The maximum profit is _______________ when ____________ widgets are produced and sold.



(d) Determine the price to charge per widget in order to maximize profit.




(e) Find and interpret the break-even points.  Round answer to nearest whole number.Show work.



  1. (6 pts) The faucet in Nancy’s house can fill the sink in 6 minutes, while the drain can empty the same sink in 9 minutes. If her son, Tommy, turns the faucet on and leaves the drain open, how much time does Nancy have to discover the open faucet before the sink is filled and starts to overflow?  In other words, how long will it take to fill the sink (in which case, Nancy will have a mess on her hands)?
