and solve the following problem which involves equations, formulas and
inequalities.



The cost to produce one
compact disc is $1.50 plus a one-time fixed cost of $2000. The revenue received
from selling One compact disc is $12


a) Write a formula that
gives the cost C of producing x
compact discs. Be sure to include the fixed cost.


b) Write a formula that
gives the revenue R from selling
x
compact discs.

minus cost. Write a formula that calculates the profit P from selling x compact discs.
