This is a intermediate algebra problem:
A company that manufactures hospital beds has fixed monthly costs of $225,000. The average cost per bed, C, for the company to manufacture x beds per month is modeled by the formula
C = 550x + 225,000
How many hospital beds can be manufactured per month at an average cost of $800?
The value of c is given in the problem we need to find the value of x according to the model.
c = average cost per bed = 800
The problem is solved giving all necessary steps.
