describe the approximate tax T in dollars per ton that would result in p% (in decimal form) reduction in carbon dioxide emissions. What tax will rediuse emission 75% T=-0.65-193In(1-p) 7/24/2014 | Jeanie from Yakima, WA | 1 Answer | 0 Votes Mark favorite Subscribe Comment
What tax (T) will reduce emissions (p) by 75%? The formula given for the Tax in the problem statement is: T = -0.65 - 198*ln(1-p) We want p = 75% = 0.75 (in decimal form). T = -0.65 - 193*ln(1-0.75) T = -0.65 - 193*ln(0.25) Use your calculator to find the value of ln(0.25) and then complete the calculations to find T. The units of T are dollars per ton. 7/24/2014 | Philip P. Comment
