I was wondering if anyone can help me on this problem...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A truck burns fuel at the rate of G(x) gallons per mile. Where

[tex] G(x) = \frac {1} {32} \left(\frac {64}{x} + \frac {x}{50} \right) [/tex]

a. Find the cost function C(x) if the truck takes a 400 mile trip. Assume that the cost of fuel is $1.60 per gallon.

b. What is the speed that will produce minimum cost on this trip?

So....if anyone can help me with this...Please..please do so, I would be very very appreciative. Thanks
