Cost

In a manufacturing process where y = C ( x ) represents the cost of producing x units, the elasticity of cost is defined as E ( x ) = marginal cost average cost = C ( x ) C ( x ) / x = x y d y d x .

Find the cost function when the elasticity function is E ( x ) = 20 x y 2 y 10 x where C ( 100 ) = 500 and x 100.
