(See textbook page 82 for definitions of the economic functions used in this problem.)
The cost, in dollars, for a company to produce x widgets is given by C(x) = 4150 + 7.00x
for x  0, and the price-demand function, in dollars per widget, is p(x) = 45 − 0.03x for 0
 x  2250.
(a) Find and interpret C(300).
(b) Find and interpret 𝐶̅ (300). (Note that 𝐶̅ (x) is the average cost function.)
