MATH 107 QUIZ 4
NAME: _______________________________
November, 2018
Instructor: C. Fletcher
I have completed this assignment myself, working independently and not consulting anyone except the instructor.
INSTRUCTIONS
• The quiz is worth 100 points. There are 13 problems. This quiz is open book and open notes. This means that
you may refer to your textbook, notes, and online classroom materials, but you must work independently and
may not consult anyone (and confirm this with your submission). You may take as much time as you wish,
provided you turn in your quiz no later than Monday, November XXX.
• Show work/explanation where indicated. Answers without any work may earn little, if any, credit. You
may type or write your work in your copy of the quiz, or if you prefer, create a document containing your work.
Scanned work is acceptable also. In your document, be sure to include your name and the assertion of
independence of work.
• General quiz tips and instructions for submitting work are posted in the Quizzes module.
• If you have any questions, please contact me by e-mail.

12. (8 pts) Consider the equation 5x + 16 = 10x. Find the complex solutions (real and nonreal) of the equation, and simplify as much as possible. Show work.
13. (18 pts)
The cost, in dollars, for a company to produce x widgets is given by C(x) = 5250 + 7.00x for
x ≥ 0, and the price-demand function, in dollars per widget, is p(x) = 45 − 0.02x for 0 ≤ x ≤ 2250.
In Quiz 2, problem #10, we saw that the profit function for this scenario is
P(x) = − 0.02x2 + 38.00x − 5250.
(a) The profit function is a quadratic function and so its graph is a parabola.
Does the parabola open up or down? __________
(b) Find the vertex of the profit function P(x) using algebra. Show algebraic work.
(c) State the maximum profit and the number of widgets which yield that maximum profit:
The maximum profit is _______________
when ____________ widgets are produced and sold.
(d) Determine the price to charge per widget in order to maximize profit.
(e) Find and interpret the break-even points. Show algebraic work.
