1. ## the Calculus is killing my grades

calculus problem-please someone help me out not the best at this
p=D(x)=125e^-0.001x ; p=S(x)=25e^0.001x

The value of x at equilibrium is___________

Find the consumer's surplus and the producers' surplus at the equilibrium price level for the given price demand and price supply equations. Round all values to nearest integer.

In order to start this problem we must note that at equilibrium Demand=Supply and therefore D(X)=S(X)

$125 e^{-0.001x} = 25 e^{0.001x}$
$e^{0.002x} = \frac{125}{25}$
$e^{0.002x}=5$

$0.002x = ln(5)$
$x = \frac{ln(5)}{0.002}$
$x = 1.6094$

$D(1.6094) = 125e^{(-0.001(1.6094))} =124.80$
$S(1.6094) = 25 e^{(0.001(1.6094))} = 25.04$

Equilibrium demand and price $= q(e),p(e) = [ 124.80, 25.04]$
$p(e)q(e) = (124.80)(25.04) = 3,124.99$

CS $= 125 \int^1_0 e^{-0.001x} dx -p(e)q(e)$

$\int e^{-0.001x} dx = -e^{-0.001x} /.001 = -1,000e^{-0.001x}$
$F(x) = -125,000 e^{-0.001x}$
$F(124.80) = -125,000e^{(-0.001(124.80))} = -110334.177$
$F(0) = -125000$
$F(124.80)-F(0) = -110334.177 - (-125,000) = 14,665.82$
$14,665.82 - p(e)q(e) = 14,665.82- 3,124.99 = 11540.83$
$CS = 11,540.83$

moving on to PS

$=p(e)q(e) - 25 \int e^{0.001x} dx$
$\int e^{0.001x} dx = 1000e^{0.001x}$
$25,000 e^{0.001x}$
$Let F(x) = 25,000 e^{0.001x}$
$F(25.04) = 25633.90$
$F(0) = 25000$
$F(25)-F(0) = 25633.90 - 25000 = 633.90$
$p(e)q(e) = 3,124.99 -633.90 = 2,491.09$

$PS = 2,491.09$

you have posted similar problems now try those and see if you can follow the general procedure i have demonstrated

thanks for the help. Got 2 more for you math brains.
A contaminated lake is treated with bactericide.The rate of increase in harmful bacteria t days after the treatment is given by the following function where N(t) is the number of bacteria per milliliter of water. Since dN/dt is negative, the count of harmful bacteria is decreasing.

dN/dt=-2000t/(1+t^2) 0=too or less then t =too less then 8

(A) Find the minimum value of dN/dt
The minimum value of dN/dt is________bacteria/ml per day
