Annual profit in thousands of dollars is given by the function, P(x) = -.01x2 + 50x + 30,000, where x is the number of items sold, x ≥ 0. So then what steps should the company do to prepare for my answer which was 92,500 was the max weekly profit when 2,500 units are sold?

Are you looking for the steps in which to obtain max profit given quadratic function? If so you can use x = -b/2a where a,b,c correspond to coefficients of function. This gives the x value of where our max occurs, this is where the 2500 units comes from. To get the y value (92500) substitute x value into function. ->P(2500) = 92500 Does that help?
