The annual profit of the Digitronics company after x years is predicted to be P(x)=5.27x^0.3 - 0.463x^1.52 million dollars for `0<= x<=8` .
The first derivative of the profit function is:
P'(x) = 1.581*x^(-0.7) - 0.70376*x^0.52
The second derivative of the profit function is:
P''(x) = -1.1067*x^-1.7 - 0.3659552*x^-0.48
At x = 3,
P(3) = 4.8680861020080144.868086102008014
P'(3) = -.5132924188589684
P''(3) = -.3869496236565245
P(3) gives the profit at x = 3, P'(3) gives the rate at which the profit is changing at x = 3 and P''(3) gives the rate at which the change in profit is changing at x = 3.
