Question

Because a new employee must learn an assigned task, production will increase with time. Suppose that for the average new employee, the rate of performance is given by

dN/dt= 1/2(t+1)^-1

where N is the number of units completed t hours after beginning a new task. If 2 units are completed after 3 hours, how many units are completed after 8 hours?
