Reorder Costs The ordering and transportation cost C for components used in a manufacturing process is approximated by
where f is measured in thousands of dollars and x is the order size in hundreds.
(a) Verify that .
(b) According to Rolle's Theorem, the rate of change of the cost must be 0 for some order size in die interval (3,6).Find dial order size.
To prove: That the for the given function .
The ordering and transported is , where C is measured in thousands of dollars and x is the order size in hundreds.
Substitute the x value,
To calculate: The order size in the given interval where the rate of change of cost must be zero.
