Example 1: Given f ( x , y ) = 2 x 2- 3 xy + y 2- 4, find the following: a) f ( 3 , ) b) f ( 1 , 2 ) c) f ( 4 , 1 ) Example 2: A company manufactures ten and three speed bicycles. The weekly demand and cost equations are p = 230- 9 x + y , q = 130 + x- 4 y , C ( x , y ) = 200 + 80 x + 30 y where $ p is the price of a ten speed bicycle, $ q is the price of a three speed bicycle, x is the weekly demand for ten speed bicycles, y is the weekly demand for three speed bicycles, and C ( x , y ) is the cost function. a) Find the weekly revenue function and R ( 10 , 15 ) . b) Find the weekly profit function and P ( 10 , 15 ) 1 c Kendra Kilmer April 23, 2009 Definition: The Cobb-Douglas production function is defined as...
