 Question 4627: A rancher wants to yield the maximum amount of edible beef off his square mile of land. At first he finds that as he adds more cattle, his yield goes up. However, if he overgrazes, the harvest goes down. An agricultural agent tells him that his yield will vary quadratically with the number of animals that he grazes. For five head of cattle, his production is 8,750 pounds of beef, and for 10 head, he reaps 15,000 pounds of beef. He has no production when he was grazing no cattle. a) Define the variables, write the odered pairs, and find the particular equation of this function. b) What number of cattle will give him his maximum profit in number of pounds? c) What is this weight? d) What is the domain and range of this function?
