  2. Suppose John makes more than 100 DVDs for his friend. complete the table below showing his costs at different levels of production.

  3. Graph the function C(x) from 0 ≤ x ≤ 3000 .

  4. What happens to the cost per DVD? Why do you think this happens?

BONUS: Write a function D(x), that can be used to find the cost per DVD for any value of x. Refer to the diagram of f(x) shown below for questions 4­5

  1. What is the domain and range of f(x)? Write your answer in interval notation.

  2. Sketch the graph of each of the following. Describe the transformation in each graph:

    a. g(x)=f(x)­1

b. h(x) = ­f(x)

c. p(x)=f(x+2)
d. q(x)=­f(x+2)­1
