 Question 113680: CAN SOME ONE HELP ME WITH THIS PROBLEM. FOR THE FOLLOWINH FUNCTION, C COMPUTES THE COST IN MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF IMPLEMENTING A CITY RECYCLING PROJECT WHEN X PERCENT OF THE CITIZENS PARTICIPATE. C(x)=1.4x/100-x a. using this model, approximately what is the cost if 60% of the citizens participate? b.using this model, estimate the percentage of participation that can be excepted if \$4 million is spent on this recycling project. Set up an equation and solve algebraically. Round to the nearest whole percent.Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15645)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!For the following function, C computes the cost in millions of dollars of implementing a city recycling project when x percent of the citizens participate. C(x)= : A) using this model, approximately what is the cost if 60% of the citizens participate. answer and show work : Substitute 60 for x in the above equation, find C(x) C(x)= : C(x)= : C(x) = 2.1 million dollars when 60% participate : : B) using this model estimate the percentage of participation that can be excepted if \$4 million is spent on this recycling project. Set up an equation and solve algebraically. Round to the nearest whole percent. : = 4: substituted 4 for C(x) : Multiply equation by (100-x) to get rid of the denominator: 1.4x = 4(100 - x) : 1.4x = 400 - 4x : 1.4x + 4x = 400 : 5.4x = 400 : x = 400/5.4 : x = 74% participation when 4 million is spent
