A factory owner who employes m workers finds that they produce q= 1.8m(1.8m+9)^3/2 units of product per day. The total revenue R in dollars is R=1029q / (336672+4q)^1/2 (a) From the fact that revenue =(price per unit)(number of units) it follows that R=(price per unit)q So when there are 15 workers, the price per unit is 1.7150 dollars. (b) When there are 15 workers, the marginal revenue is ??? dollars/(one unit of product). (c) The marginalrevenue product is defined as the rate of change of revenue with respect to the number of employees. Therefore, marginalrevenue product=dR/dm If q and R are given as above then, when m= 15, the marginalrevenue product is _________ ? dollars/(one worker). This means that if employee number 16 is hired, revenue will increase by approximately _________? dollars per day.

sorry, I know this question solve is R'(q) But I try lots of time for this Now, I only have 1 times to try this question. Could you tell me what is the number answer of this quesiton? Thanks a lot
