The revenue R from selling x units of a product is 

R = 25.65x.

 The cost C of producing x units is

C = 13.75x + 145,000.

In order to obtain a profit, the revenue must be greater than the cost. For what values of x will the product return a profit? (Assume the product can only be sold in whole units. Round your answer up to the nearest whole number.)

The product will return a profit for x ? Needs to be in Units.

Step 1

 

We have given,

Revenue function, R(x) = 25.65x

Cost function, C(x) = 13.75x + 145,000

To get profit, R(x) must be greater than C(x)

i.e  R(x) > C(x)

or R(x) – C(x) > 0

Step 2

Now, we need to find the value of x...
