Page 107: Help

Pages 108-109: Finding extreme values is important in economics… // In this chapter we’re going to use calculus…

Pages 110-111: Our first challenge here is to translate words… // For our problem, it’s easiest to focus…

Pages 112-113: It often helps to sketch a graph… // and in this case the graph’s symmetry…

Pages 114-115: In the last chapter we learned… // So we take our function…

Pages 116-117: Thanks to calculus… // Then all we have to do…

Page 118: The world is full of optimization problems like this…
