Step 1

Hello. Since your question has multiple sub-parts, we will solve first three sub-parts for you. If you want remaining sub-parts to be solved, then please resubmit the whole question and specify those sub-parts you want us to solve.

Consider the calculation for (1).

Let the number of units of toy light sabers be x.

Calculate the cost price for the x units of light sabers.

Then the function for the cost price is C(x).

Calculate the selling price for the x units of light sabers.

Then the function for the revenue is R(x).

Step 2

Then, consider the formula for the profit function P(x).

Substitute the value of R(x) and C(x) in the P(x) and simplify to calculate P(x).

Calculate the value of P (59).

Step 3

Consider the calculation for (2).

The value of P (59) is 81.833.

Hence, th...
