# In Problems 9-16, cost is in dollars and x is the number of units. Find the marginal cost functions for the given cost functions. 11.   C ( x ) = 500 + 13 x + x 2

To determine

To calculate: The marginal cost function for the total cost function C(x)=500+13x+x2.

Explanation

Given Information:

The given total cost function is C(x)=500+13x+x2.

Formula used:

According to the power rule, if f(x)=xn, then,

f(x)=nxn1

According to the property of differentiation, if a function is of the form, g(x)=cf(x), then,

g(x)=cf(x)

According to the property of differentiation, if a function is of the form f(x)=u(x)+v(x), then,

f(x)=u(x)+v(x)

The derivative of a constant value, k, is

ddx(k)=0

Calculation:

Consider the provided total cost function,

C(x)=500+13x+x2

The marginal cost of a cost function is found by differentiating the total cost function and denoted by MC
