Firstly (3q+3)/860)/q = (3q+3)/(860q) If f(q)=(3q+3)/(860q) then f'(q) = [(860q)(3) - 860(3q+3)] /[860^2 * q^2] using the quotient rule =[3q - (3q+3)] /[860 * q*q] = -3 / (860qq) C average= 860*q^(-1) + 4100e^[(3q+3)/860q] dC/dq = (-860 /q^2) + 4100 * [ -3 / (860qq) ] e^[(3q+3)/860q] When q=101 dC/dq = (-1/10201)[(860 + 14.3023255 e ^ (306 / 86860)] = -0.086 This doesn't sound right. It would ususally be a positive answer. It can be negative it just would rarely be. Tags derivatives, exponential, function Search tags for this page
