(C) The marginal cost of a cup of coﬀee is the cost of producing one additional cup.
(D) The marginal cost of a cup of coﬀee is the cost of producing zero cups.
(E) None of these. 14. A product has a production cost function C (x) = 460x + 6670 and a revenue function R(x) = 575x.
Find and analyze the breakeven quantity, then ﬁnd the proﬁt function. Answer parts (i) and (ii)
below.
(i) The breakeven quantity is
(A) less than 30 units (B) between 30 units and 40 units (C) between 40 units and 50 units (D) between 50 units and 60 units (E) more than 60 units
(ii) Choose the correct proﬁt function.
(A) P (x) = 6670 − 115x (B) P (x) = 1035x + 6670 (D) P (x) = 115x − 6670 (E) None of these (C) P (x) = 575x 15. Joanne sells silkscreened Tshirts at community festivals and craft fairs. Her marginal cost to produce
one Tshirt is $3.50. Her total cost to produce 40 Tshirts is $230, and she sells them for $7 each. How
many Tshirts must she produce and sell in order to break even?
(A) less than 15 (B) between 15 and 30 (D) between 45 and 60 (E) more than 60 (C) between 30 and 45 16. The graph below shows supply and demand for a product Answer parts (i) through (iii) below.
(i) At the equilibrium point for this product, p = q= (ii) The price p = 30 is
the equilibrium price.
At this price, how many items are suppliers willing to produce?
How many items do consumers want to buy?
Use your answers to these questions to explain why, if prices are
the equilibrium
price, the market tends to push prices
(toward the equilibrium). (iii) The price p = 10 is
the equilibrium price.
At this price, how many items are suppliers willing to produce?
How many items do consumers want to buy?
Use your answers to these questions to explain why, if prices are
the equilibrium
price, the market tends to push prices
(toward the equilibrium). 2

(i) and (ii) below.
(i) Graph these equations on the same axes. (ii) Find the equilibrium price. 18. Find the domain of the function f (x) = x2 3
.
−4 (A) (−∞, −2) ∪ (−2, 2) ∪ (2, ∞) (B) (−∞, ∞) (D) (−∞, 0) ∪ (0, ∞) (C) (2, ∞) (E) None of these 19. Indicate whether the graph speciﬁes a function. (A) The graph does specify a function (B) The graph does not specify a function 20. Let Answer parts (i) through (iii) 2x + 2 x−9
f ( x) = 2 if x = 9
if x = 9 (i) Find the value of f (9).
