(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

suppose that the dollar cost of producing x washing machines is c(x)= 2000 + 100x-0.1x6^2

a) find the average cost of producing 100 washing machines.

b) find the marginal cost when 100 washing machines are produced.

2. Relevant equations

c(x)= 2000 + 100x-0.1x6^2: the only equation given

3. The attempt at a solution

i've tried taking the derivative and then substituting it with 100. for part a and for part b i didnt take the derivative, just plugged in 100 into the equation given
