The minimum cost to the company (using your answer from 3b) will be: $ Note: The answer to 3b may not be as simple as rounding the answer to 3a. You should check the actual cost to the company to the whole numbers above and below your answer to 3a. 5. Rewrite your equation from above, replacing the $1000 fine with the constant f. Your equation will involve both the variable x and the constant f: C(x)= 6. Determine the number of crews that should be brought into minimize the cost to the company as a function of the fine amount.
