point A and B are opposite to each other on the shores of a straight river 5km wide. point F is on the same shore as B but K kilometers down the river from B. Atelephone company wishes to lay a cable from A to f where the cost per km of the cable on land is 10,000 US dollar and under the water is 12,500 US dollar. Let P be a point on the same shoreas B annd Fso that the cable runs from A to P to F.(a)if X kilometer is the distance from B to P obtain an equation defining (x) if C(x) dollars is the total cost of laying cable and state the domain of C.
(b) if K-2 solve the value of X for wich the cost (C) of laying cable is least as will as the least cost.
