Cersei is the ruler of a country and her army is fighting a war. The probability of her side winning
the war depends upon two variables - the average fitness of her army (given by x) and the morale of
her army (denoted by m). Furthermore, both the fitness and morale are functions of how much food
is available to her army. If f kilogram of food is available to her army (per person per day), then
x(f) = −f
2 + 5f and m(f) = f − 1 (where f ∈ [0, 5]). The probability of her side winning the
war is given by a function of x and m and is given by the function g such that g(x, m) = x
2+2m+2
40 .
Currently, her army is getting 1.5 kg of food per person per day. By approximately how much will
her army’s probability of winning change if she increases the supply of food by a very small amount?
