This is the problem. Need help developing equations and understanding what goes in the blanks. Thank You

1. A manufacturer has identified the options for acquiring a machined part. It can make the part on a numerically controlled lathe for \$150 per unit (including materials.) It can make the part on a standard lathe for \$250 per unit It can make the part on a machining center for \$50 per unit (also including materials.) The manufacturer can acquire a standard lathe for \$10,000. It could acquire a numerically controlled lathe for \$100,000. A machining center would cost \$350,000. It has also found that it can purchase the part for \$350 per unit. Draw a graph. Develop the equations. Show your work.
