    Answer:

    f(2) = $180.22

    f'(2) = $130.00/week

    f'(2)/f(2) = 72.13%

    Two weeks after the DVD was released,  the revenue from sales is $180.22 and is increasing at a rate of $130 per week,  or 72.13% per week.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The revenue from sales, in dollars, as a function of time, in weeks, is given by:

    f(t)=260ln(t)

    After two weeks (t=2), the revenue from sales is:

    f(2)=260ln(2)\\f(2) = \$180.22

    The rate of change, which is given by the derivate of the revenue function, at t = 2 weeks is:

    f'(t)=\frac{d}{dt} 260ln(t)\\f'(t) = \frac{260}{t}\\f'(2) = \frac{260}{2}=\$130.00/week

    The relative rate of change is:

    \frac{f'(2)}{f(2)}=\frac{130}{180.22}=0.7213=72.13\%

    Therefore, Two weeks after the DVD was released,  the revenue from sales is $180.22 and is increasing at a rate of $130 per week,  or 72.13% per week.
