I am having trouble completing an analysis question. The equation for the COST of laying power cables is: C=a[85tan(30)]+5bsec(30) where 'a' and 'b' are separate costs($) for laying the cable underwater and on land respectively. I need to investigate the possible effects of a change in the costs of running the cable under water and/or on land. How would I show and explain my results? I suspect that I need to show some kind of graph...possibly a derivate...?
