Question

Duru has an ice-cream stand, which she opens on days that are forecasted to be warmer than 10°C.
When open for business, her daily profit, P, is a function of the number of cones she sells, n, and can be
modeled by the function P(n) = 2n – 20. Additionally, she finds that the number of cones she sells, C.
is a function of the average temperature, t, in degrees Celsius (°C), and can be modeled by the function
C(t) = 50 + 10(t – 10).
Find an explicit expression that gives Duru’s profit on a day with an average temperature of t° C.

    Answer:

    [tex]P(c(t)) = 20t-120[/tex]

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given

    [tex]P(n) = 2n – 20[/tex]

    [tex]C(t) = 50 + 10(t – 10)[/tex]

    Required

    Determine [tex]P(C(t))[/tex]

    The implication of the question is to solve for [tex]P(C(t))[/tex]

    Given that

    [tex]C(t) = 50 + 10(t – 10)[/tex] and [tex]P(n) = 2n – 20[/tex]

    [tex]P(c(t))[/tex] would be

    [tex]P(c(t)) = 2(50 + 10(t – 10)) – 20[/tex]

    [tex]P(c(t)) = 2(50 + 10t – 100) – 20[/tex]

    [tex]P(c(t)) = 2(50 – 100+ 10t) – 20[/tex]

    [tex]P(c(t)) = 2(-50+ 10t) – 20[/tex]

    Open Bracket

    [tex]P(c(t)) = -100+ 20t – 20[/tex]

    Collect Like Terms

    [tex]P(c(t)) = 20t-100 – 20[/tex]

    [tex]P(c(t)) = 20t-120[/tex]
