# Thread: revenue from manufacturing process

1. ## revenue from manufacturing process

The revenue from a manufacturing process (in millions of dollars per year) is projected to follow the model
R= 100 + .08t for ten years.
Over the same period of time, the cost is projected to follow the model
C= 60 + .2t (where t is time in years)
What is the approximate profit over the 10 year period? And what steps do I take to find the answer?

$P(t) = R(t)- C(t)$

$P(t) = (100 + .08t) -(60 + .2t)$

Now find $P(10)$
