asked • 12/09/16# It costs a company $30,000 to begin production of a good, plus $3 for every unit of the good produced. Let x be the number of units produced by the company.

**I have managed to do:**

## A) Find the formula for c(x), the total cost for the production of x units of the good. c(x) = 3x + 30,000.

## B) Find a formula for the company's average cost per unit, a(x). a(x) = (3x+30,000)/(x).

## C) Graph y=a(x) for 0 < x ≤ 50,000, 0 ≤ y ≤ 10. Label the horizontal asymptote.

**I get stuck on these though:**

## D) Explain in economic terms why the graph of a has the long-run behavior that it does.

## E) Explain in economic terms why the graph of a has the vertical asymptote that it does.

## F) Find the formula for a^{-1}(y). Give an economic interpretation of a^{-1}(y).

## G) The company makes a profit if the average cost of its good is less than $5 per unit. Find the minimum number of units the company can produce and make a profit.
