The daily production cost, C, of a special edition toy car is given by the function C(t)= 0.2t^2 - 10t + 650, where C(t) is in dollars and t is the number of cars made.

A. How many cars must be made to minimize the production cost?

B. Using the number of cars from part a), determine the cost

C(t)= 0.2t^2 - 10t + 650 if graphed, this is a bowl shaped parabola

the minimum will occur at t = - b/2a = - (-10)/(2* .2) = 10/ .4 = 25 cars

Cost of 25 cars will be : C (t) = 0.2 (25^{2}) - 10 (25) + 650 = ___________ you can do the calcs.....
