 # Modeling Costs for the General Store 1. Remember the form of a quadratic equation: ax2+bx+c 2. You will use: W=-.01x2+100x+c where (-.01x2+100x) represents the store's variable costs and c is the store's fixed costs. 3. So, W is the stores total monthly costs based on the number of items sold, x. 4. Think about what the variable and fixed costs might be for your fictitious storefront business - and be creative. Start by choosing a fixed cost, c, between $5,000 and$10,000, according to the following class chart: 5. My last name is Haggins so my fixed cost would be be between $5800-$6400 If your last name starts with the letter Choose a fixed cost between A-E $5000-$5700 F-I $5800-$6400 J-L $6500-$7100 M-O $7200-$7800 P-R $7800-$8500 S-T $860 Haley Madden 2022-07-28 Answered Modeling Costs for the General Store 1.

Post your chosen c value in your subject line, so your classmates can easily scan the discussion thread and try to avoid duplicating your c value. (Different c values make for more discussion.) 7. Your monthly cost is then, W = -.01x^2+100x+c. 8. Substitute the c value chosen in the previous step to complete your unique equation pblackicting your monthly costs. 9. Next, choose two values of x (number of items sold) between 100 and 200. Again, try to choose different values from classmates. 10. Plug these values into your model for W and evaluate the monthly business costs given that sales volume. 11. Discuss results and alternate business decisions.

W=-.01x2+100x+ 8000
let x be 100
w= -100+ 10000+ 8000
= 17900
let x be 200
w= -400+20000+8000
= 27600
so the cost is increasing as i m increasing the value of x means the variable cost is increasing
