Ex 6.1, 16 The total revenue in Rupees received from the sale of 𝑥 units of a product is given by R(𝑥) = 13𝑥2 + 26𝑥 + 15. Find the marginal revenue when 𝑥 = 7.
Marginal revenue is rate of change of total revenue w. r. t the number of unit sold
Let MR be marginal revenue
So, MR = 𝒅𝑹/𝒅𝒙
Given,
Total revenue = R(𝑥)=13𝑥^2+26𝑥+15
We need to find marginal revenue when 𝑥 = 7
i.e. MR when 𝒙 = 7
MR = 𝑑(𝑅(𝑥))/𝑑𝑥
MR = ( 𝑑(13𝑥^2 + 26𝑥 + 15))/𝑑𝑥
MR = 𝑑(13𝑥^2 )/𝑑𝑥+𝑑(26𝑥)/𝑑𝑥+𝑑(15)/𝑑𝑥
MR = 13 𝑑(𝑥^2 )/𝑑𝑥+ 26 𝑑(𝑥)/𝑑𝑥+0
MR = 13 × 2𝑥+26
MR = 26𝑥+26
MR = 26 (𝒙+𝟏)
We need to find MR when 𝑥=7
Putting 𝑥=7
MR = 26 (7+1)
MR = 26 × 8
MR = 208
Hence Required marginal Revenue is Rs 208
