 Question 233539: The equation y = 0.002x+ 0.50 can be used to determine the approximate profit, y in dollars, of producing x items. How many items must be produced so the profit will be at least \$1795? Answer by rapaljer(4667)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!y = 0.002x+ 0.50 Solve for x where y = 1795 1795=0.002x+0.50 Subtract 0.50 from each side: 1794.50=.002x Divide both sides by .002 x=897,250 items Dr. Robert J.
