The following figure shows the devastating effect the opening of a new discount department store had on an established department store in a small town. The revenue of the discount store at time t (in months) is given by f(t) million dollars, whereas the revenue of the established department store at time t is given by g(t) million dollars. Answer the following questions by giving the value of t at which the specified event took place.

(a) The revenue of the established department store is decreasing at the slowest rate.
t =

According to a study conducted in 2003, the total number of U.S. jobs that are projected to leave the country by year t, where t = 0 corresponds to 2000, is represented by the following function where N(t) is measured in millions.
N(t) = 0.0018425(t + 8)5.5 (0 t 15)
How fast was the number of U.S. jobs that are outsourced changing in 2004? How fast will the number of U.S. jobs that are outsourced be changing at the beginning of 2012 (t = 12)? (Round your answers to the nearest whole number.)
2004 jobs/year
