What is the cost to remove 75% of the pollutant? C=6000/200 - 2x) replace x with the percent C = 6000/(200 – 2•75) = 6000 /(200 - 150) =6000/50 = 120 million dollars b. What is the cost to remove 90 % of the pollutant? C=6000/200 - 2x) replace x with the percent C = 6000/ (200 – 2•90) = 6000/ (200 - 180) =6000/20 = 300 million dollars c. What is the cost to remove 99% of the pollutant? C=6000/200 - 2x) replace x with the percent C = 6000/ (200 – 2•99) = 6000/ (200 - 198) =6000/2 = 3000 million dollars d. For what value is this equation undefined? d....
