Re: Why gives Plot[GTK,{q,o,30}] negat. min. at q=15 ? (GTK:=1/3 q^2 - 10 q + 100)

Read the scale on your vertical axis, Jan.

Begin Forwarded Message:

Say GTK = ATC = Average Total Cost := 1/3 q^2 - 10 q + 100

When I give Plot[GTK,{q,0,30}] the resulting graph gives a minimum
below to X-axis at aboutq=15

When I give q=15 and N[GTK] it evaluates correctly to GTK=25.

What am I doing wrong ?  Thanks for any effort you take !
