Math Problem Statement
An airplane crosses the Atlantic Ocean (3000 miles) with an airspeed of 500 miles per hour. The cost C (in dollars) per passenger is given by c(x)=100+(x)/(25)+(34000)/(x), where x is the ground speed (airspeed and wind), what is the cost per passenger with a head wind speed of 100 miles per hour?
