We use this metho next example. A Model for the Food Price index A model‘for the food price index (the price of a i'egaresentative “basket” of feud: between 1990 and 2000 is given by the function 1(t) = "-0.0113z3 + 0.06811“? + 0.198: + 99.1 where r is measured in years since midyear 1990, so 0 S I :5 10, and [(t) is so that [(3) m 100. Estimate the time when food was most expensive during'th period 1990—2000. Solution The graph of I as a function of t is shown in Figure 8(a). There ap to be a maximum between t 2 4 and t = 7. Using the ma x i mu in command, as shown in Figure 8(b), we see that the maximum value of I is about 100.38, at occurs when t m 5.15, which corresponds to August 1995. Qaéii‘éi’tgg; I: 9!"

Revenue A manufacturer finds that the revenue generated by selling x units of a certain commodity is given by the function R(x) ~= 80x — 04x2, where the revenue R05) is measured in dollars. What is the maximum revenue, and how many units should be manufactured to obtain this maximum?

Advertising The effectiveness of a television com~ mercial depends on how many times a viewer watches it. After some experiments an advertising agency found that if the effectiveness E is measured on a scale of 0 to 10, then an) =% as where n is the number of times a viewer watches a given commercial. For a commercial to have maximum effective“ ness, how many times should a viewer watch it?

Agrieuiture The number of apples produced by each tree in an appie orchard depends on how densely the trees are planted. If n trees are planted on an acre of land, then each tree produces 900 m 911 apples. So the number of apples produced per acre is A011) E 11(930 W 9n) HE fi 67. 68. .

Using a mathematical model of energy expenditure, it can be shown that the tot ' energy E required to swim a distance of 10 mi is given by ' 10 E $2.733 00 UPS Biologists believe that migrating fish try to minimize the total energy required to swim a fixed distance. Find the vaiue of u that minimizes energy required. NOTE This resuit has been verified; migrating fish swim ' against a current at a speed 50% greater than the speed of the - current. Highway Engineering A highway engineer wants to estimate the maximum number of cars that can safely trave a particular highway at a given speed. She assumes that 83? car is 17 ft long, traveis at a speed s, and follows the car in front of it at the “safe following distance” for that speed. She finds that the number N of cars that can pass a given point per minute is modeled by the function 88.? 2 s .i. _. 17 i7 ( 20) At what speed can the greatest number of cars travel file I highway safeiy?

Finding a function that de« scribes the dependence of one quantity on another is called modeling. For example, a bioiogist observes that the number of bacteria in a certain culture increases with time. He tries to model this phenomenon by finding the precise function (or rule) that relates the bacteria population to the elapsed time. In this section we will learn how to find models that can be constructed using geo- metric or algebraic properties of the object under study. (Finding models from data is 1“ Safely “3 studied in the Focus on Modeling at the end of this chapter.) Once the model is found, “mes that?

Modeling the Voiume of a Box A breakfast cereal company manufactures boxes to package their product. For aesthetic reasons, the box must have the following proportions: Its Width is 3 times its depth and its height is 5 times its depth. (a) Find a function that models the volume of the box in terms of its depth. (b) Find the volume of the box if the depth is 1.5 in. (c) For what depth is the volume 90mg?
