( 40 points ) The demand equation for a certain brand of metal alloy audiotape is 100 x 2 + 9 p 2 = 3600 where x represents the number (in thousands) of ten-packs demanded each week when the unit price is p (in dollars). How fast is the quantity demanded increasing when the unit price/ten- pack is $14 and the selling price is dropping at the rate of $0 . 15/ten-pack/week? W ork IX-1. From the information given, we know that when p = 14 and dp dt =- . 15, x can be found as shown below. 100 x 2 + 9 p 2 = 3600 = ⇒ 100 x 2 + 9 · 14 2 = 3600 (1) x 2 = 3600- 9 · 14 2 100 = ⇒ x = r 3600- 9 · 14 2 100 ≈ 4 . 2849 (2) Now, the question here is to find dx dt where t is time in weeks. x and p are some functions of...
