# Pollution The percent p of particulate pollution that can be removed from the smokestacks of an industrial plant by spending C dollars is given by p = 100 C 7300 + C Find the percent of the pollution that could be removed if spending C were allowed to increase without bound. Can 100% of the pollution be removed? Explain.

To determine

To calculate: The percent of pollution that can be removed when C dollars were spent, where the percent pollution of particulate is represented by, p=100C7300+C and whether 100% of the pollution be removed from the exhaust.

Explanation

Given Information:

The percent of particulate pollution that can be removed from the smokestacks of an industrial plant after spending C dollars is represented by the function, p=100C7300+C. The expenditure on the removal of pollution is done without bounds.

Formula used:

A limit limxcx can be simplified as,

limxcx=c

Calculation:

Consider the provided function,

p=100C7300+C

Since, the expenditure done to remove the particulates is without bound, thus, C. To find the percent of pollution that can be removed when C dollars were spent, consider the limit,

limC100C7300+C

Take C common from the numerator and denominator,

limC100C7300+C=limC100x
