# Find the speed v, in miles per hour, that will minimize costs on a 115-mile delivery trip. The cost per hour for fuel is C dollars, and the driver is paid W dollars per hour. (Assume there are no costs other than wages and fuel. Round your answer to one decimal place.)Fuel cost: C = (v^2/240)Driver: W = $18.90I am a bit confused about this question and I ve done all the steps right but cant get the right answer

Equations and Inequations

Equations and inequalities describe the relationship between two mathematical expressions.

Linear Functions

A linear function can just be a constant, or it can be the constant multiplied with the variable like x or y. If the variables are of the form, x2, x1/2 or y2 it is not linear. The exponent over the variables should always be 1.
