The fixed cost of manufacturing the bicycles is equal to $1800. The variable cost of manufacturing one bicycle is $90.

The cost of manufacuring bicycles as a function a function C(x) of the number of bicycles manufactured is C(x) = 1800 + 90*x

The graph of the cost function C(x) = 1800 + 90*x is:

The cost of building 14 bicycles in a day is 1800+90*14 = $3060

The number of cycles that can be built with $3780 is x = (3780-1800)/90 = 22
