Phil makes and sells rugs at his roadside stand. His monthly fixed cost for owning the stand is $987. If he makes and sells 18 rugs, his total costs are $1131 and he brings in $522 in revenue. Find Phil's monthly cost, revenue, and profit functions (assuming they are linear). Let *x* be the number of rugs made and sold each month.

Step 1

If phil sell 18 rugs and bring in $522 revenue.

So selling price of a rug = $522/18 = $29.

So revenue function __R(x) = 29x__ ...(1)

Step 2

Phil cost for making 18 rugs = $1131 - $987 = $144

So his variable cost = $144/18 = $8 per rug

So cost function is C(x) = 987 + 8x ...
