(i) Cost function (ii) Revenue function (iii) Profit function (iv) Break even point.

 

2. (a) Solve :

 

(b) Discuss the continuity of given function f at x = 1 and at x = 2 where function f is defined as : •

 

 x+1 when -1<=  x <= 1

x      when   1<=  x <= 2

4-x   when  2<= x <=5

 

3. (a) Given cost function 'C' = 300x -10x2 + (-1/3) x3 where 'x' is output Find for what value of 'x' the Marginal-Cost is minimum.

(b) If Demand function : p = 10 - q - q2 and Supply function : p = q + 2 then calculate consumer-surplus and producer-surplus at equilibrium-price.

. 4. (a) Find the amount of annuity of Rs. 2,000 payable at the end of each 3 months for 6 yrs, if the money is worth 8% per annum, compounded quarterly. Use :  [ (1.02)12 =  ]

(b) Solve the given equations by Matrix-method [X = A-1B] where X. A and B are matrices. Given :

8x + 4y + 3z = 18

 2x + y + z = 5

x + 2y + z = 5.

Section B
