We describe a measurement of the ratio of the cross sections times branching fractions of the B-c(+) meson in the decay mode B-c(+) -> J/psi mu(+)nu to the B+ meson in the decay mode B+ -> J/psi K+ in proton-antiproton collisions at center-of-mass energy root s = 1.96 TeV. The measurement is based on the complete CDF Run II data set, which comes from an integrated luminosity of 8.7 fb(-1). The ratio of the production cross sections times branching fractions for B-c(+) and B+ mesons with momentum transverse to the beam greater than 6 GeV/c and rapidity magnitude smaller than 0.6 is 0.211 +/- 0.012(stat)(-0.020)(+0.021)(syst). Using the known B+ -> J/psi K+ branching fraction, the known B+ production cross section, and a selection of the predicted B-c(+) -> J/psi mu(+nu) branching fractions, the range for the total B-c(+) production cross section is estimated.
