Unformatted text preview: which is equal to the number of patients that recover per year as a function of P. Average number of patients that recover per year = N = P /T N = P /(45/(180 – P)) = (180 – P)P /45 = 4 P – (1/45) P 2 C. Determine the optimal number of patients for the clinic to have in residence if it is interested in maximizing the number of patients that recover per year. Using LINGO or Excel Solver we find that the maximum value of N = 180 with P = 90. The average recovery time is T = ½ year....
