    you have to find the vertex of the parabola. this will be the maximum point at where it peaks. to find vertex, we first need to find axis of symmetry that is -b/(2a) so -12/(2(-0.5)) -12/-1 12 is the x value plug in 12 N(x)= -0.5x^2+12x+12 N(12)= -0.5(12)^2 +12(12) +12 N(12)= -0.5(144) +144+12 -72 +144+12 N(12)=84 the tickets will be at its peak on day 12, and they will sell 84 tickets
