 Question 202598: Marginal Revenue. A defense attorney charges her client \$4000 plus \$120 per hour. The formula R=120n+4000 gives her revenue in dollars for n hours of work? What is her revenue for 100 hours of work? What is her revenue for 101 hours of work? By how much did the one extra hour of work increase the revenue.( the increase in revenue is called marginal revenue for the 101st hour.) please help I can't find the answer to this it confuses me cause I'm thinking that this should be graphed...but I have a similar problem so maybe if i get this one with help i can do the other on my own thank you for taking the time to help me.

 Question 203216: Text book Dugopolski, M. (2009). Elementary and intermediate algebra (3rd ed.) New York: McGraw-Hill Chapter 2 equations involving decimals. solve the equation by eliminating the decimal numbers 0.08t +28.3 = 0.5t - 9.5 consecutive integers. Four consecutive odd integers have a sum of 120. what are the integers? I know that -60, -40, and -20 equals 120. would the worked out answer be: x, (x+1) + (x+2) + (x + 3) = 120 4x + 4 = 120 combine like terms 4x = 116 subtract 4 from each side x = 29 divide each side by 4 x + 1 = -30 if x = 29, then x + 1 is 30 and x + 2 = 31 The problem at this point is not making sense.
