Can someone help me with the last part of this problem:
A company makes calculation and has found that the cost C$ of producing X calculators is given by the rule:
C=x(x-2) C is the cost in dollars and x is the number of calculators
It has also fund tha the revenue $R from the sale of the calculators is given by the rule:
R= (x(x+3)
Using the fact that profit equals Revenue minus Cost show that the profit $P from the sale of x cakculators is given by the rule:
P=5x
I have done this bit and can prove that the answer to x(x+3) - x(x-2) is 5x
However I cant get the next bit - please help
The company engineer invents a new production process that shows some improvement and the new rule for producing x calcuators is given by:
C=(x+20) (x-21) What would be the new rule for the profit $P using this new process. So I need to know how to work out
x(x+3) - (x+20) (x-21) I think the last part has something to do with the difference of two squares rule. please show working. Thanks a million
