# Production Analysis of daily output of a factory shows that, on average, the number of units per hour y produced after t hours of production is y = 70 t + 0.5 t 2 − t 3 ,  0 ≤ t ≤ 8 (a) Find the critical values of this function.(b) Which critical values make sense in this particular problem?(c) For which values of t, for 0 ≤ t ≤ 8 , is y increasing?(d) Graph this function.

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The critical values of the function P(t)=70t+0.5t2t3,0t8 if on an average analysis of daily output of a factory shows that the number of units per hour y produced after t hours of production.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided equation is P(t)=70t+0.5t2t3,0t8.

Formula Used:

The critical values are the only values at which the graph can have turning points, the derivative cannot change sign anywhere except at the critical value.

This, in an interval between two critical values, the sign of the derivative at any value in the interval will be the sign of the derivative at all values in the interval.

As per the First Derivative Test,

The first derivative of the function is evaluated. The first derivative is made equal to zero in order to get the critical points.

The values of the critical values are kept inside the original function which gives the critical points. The intervals of the values of x are then evaluated for the relative maximum and minimum.

If the quadratic equation is of the form ax2+bx+c=0, then the roots will be equal to:

b±b24ac2a

Calculation:

Consider the provided equation P(t)=70t+0.5t2t3,0t8,

The critical values are the only values at which the graph can have turning points, the derivative cannot change sign anywhere except at the critical value

(b)

To determine

The sense of the critical values of the function P(t)=70t+0.5t2t3,0t8 if on an average analysis of daily output of a factory shows that the number of units per hour y produced after t hours of production.

(c)

To determine

To calculate: The values of t for which the function P(t)=70t+0.5t2t3,0t8 is increasing if on an average analysis of daily output of a factory shows that the number of units per hour y produced after t hours of production.

(d)

To determine

To graph: The function P(t)=70t+0.5t2t3,0t8 is increasing if on an average analysis of daily output of a factory shows that the number of units per hour y produced after t hours of production.
