Functions R(x)=2x^2+8x and C(x)=3x+2 are the estimated revenue and cost functions for the manufacture of a new product. Determine the average profit function AP(x)=P(x)/x. Express this function in two different forms. Explain what can be determined from each form. Restrict the domain of the function to represent the context. What are the breakeven quantities? PLEASE SHOW ALL WORK

Wait, are you asking us to do your homework for you? Hint: What is P(x) in terms of R(x) and C(x)?
