Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the domain is from infinity to +infinity, then the straight line has no maxima or minima.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then your boundary values are where the line will have a maxima or minima

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so plug in x = 0 in your equation and see what the output is. That should be your minima.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you dont have a maxima because there is no boundary to infinity.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when i solved for the max, i used b/2a and came up with x=2500

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then i plugged that into p(2500)= .01(2500)^2+50(2500)+30000 to come up with 92500

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how did you kknow it is a quadratic

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because p(x) = .01x^2 +50x+30000

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there is an x^2 term. so it is quadratic> not a straight line.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then the question isAnnual 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. then graph the profit function over its given domain
