Maximizing Profit Problem

Suppose that a laundry service determines that to attract x customers per day, its price of service must be 3.20 - 0.02x dollars. If their total cost to serve x customers is 0.05x^2 + 1.10x + 120 dollars, how many customers should be served to maximize their profit? (Hint: Use the price to help get the revenue)

Linear Transformations and Subspaces

B1) This question concerns the following two subsets of : (a) Show that , and find a vector in that does not belong to T. [3] (b) Show that T is a subspace of .

Linear Combinations, Basis and Transformations

1. Given a basis B = { u1 = [1, 2], u2 = [2, 1] } for R^2, express u = [7, -2] as a linear combination of u1 and u2. How many ways can you do this? (in this problem...the u1 and u2 should actually be u sub 1 and u sub 2...I couldn't do that notation here....also the u1, u2, and u should all be bold to represent vectors) 2. L

Maximizing the Sustainable Yield

3.17) A lake has a carrying capacity of 10,000 fish. At the current level of fishing, 2000 fish per year are taken and the fish population seems to hold fairly steady at about 4000. If you wanted to maximize the sustainable yield, what would you suggest in terms of population size and yield?

Isomorphisms and automorphisms.
