do you know what the graph of this equation is going to resemble?
it looks like an upside down "U".... or rather, a frown.
the highest point of this graph tells you the max amount it can produce; and we call that point of this graph the vertex.

if you know calculus you can also get it by taking the derivative and setting it equal to zero; which gives you the vertex anyway :)
the x value of the vertex is given by the determinate of the quadratic formula: -b/2a in this case that amounts to: -60/2(.8)
the max profit is then: .8(-15/.4)^2 +60(-15/.4) + 120 = max profits
either i miscalculated or its a bad equation to begin with :) I get: -1005
its a bad equation :) http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=0.8x%5E2%2B60x%2B120
that should be a (-0.8x^2) if anything
otherwise the max profits are infinite :)
there is no maximum. as stated the problem might be -x^2? Is there a domain given for X? If this problem is stated correctly it will be a boundary for X.
