Solutions

Chapter 2.6, Problem 59E
To determine

The revenue function R(x) as a product of two functions of x.

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 59E

The value of the revenue function R(x) is 0.15x0.000002x2dollars .

Explanation of Solution

Given:

The price per bumper sticker is 0.150.000002xdollars and the number of ordered stickers is x.

Formula used: Revenue Formula

revenue=priceperitem×numberofitemssold . (1)

Calculation:

The price per bumper sticker is 0.150.000002xdollars .

The number of ordered stickers is x.

Substitute 0.150.000002x for price per item and x for number of items sold in equation (1), to find the revenue function R(x) ,

R(x)=(0.150.000002x)×(x)=0.15x0.000002x2

Thus, the value of the revenue function R(x) is 0.15x0.000002x2dollars .
