Please go back, reread the problem, and copy it correctly! I feel sure the average cost is NOT "
100x+2x/x= 100x+ 2". I might guess (100x+ 2x)/x but that is just 102. My best guess is that you meant "AC(x)= (100x+ 2)/x and that AR(x)=(100x+ 3)/x, NOT "100x+ 3/x".

Now, do you know what "revenue" and "cost" mean and how to find profit from them?
