The annual cost in dollars for removing p% of the toxic chemicals from a town’s water supply is given by the formula C(p)=500,000/100-p . a) Use the accompanying graph to estimate the cost for removing 90% and 95% of the toxic chemicals. b) Use the formula to find C(99.5) and C(99.9). c) What happens to the cost as the percentage of pollutants removed approaches 100%?Answer by checkley77(12569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!C(p) = 500,000/(100-p) C(90)=500,000/(100-90) C(90)=500,000/10 C(90)=50,000 ANS. C(95)=500,000/(100-95) C(95)=500,000/5 C(95)=100,000 ANS. C(99.5)=500,000/(100-99.5) C(99.5)=500,000/.5 C(99.5)=1,000,000 ANS. C(99.9)=500,000/(100-99.9) C(99.9)=500,00/.1 C(99.9)=5,000,000 ANS. AS P APPROACHES 100% THE COST APPROACHES INFINITY.
