Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Correct. S = x * (50  x) = 50x  x^2 You may want to know what the maximum income S(x) is: dS/dx = 50  2x = 0; x = 25 S(25) = 25 * 25 = 625 The maximum income is $625. The ticket price for that is $25.

The function S = 50x  x2 gives the estimated income from the sale of box seats. Graph the function, and use the graph to find the price for box seats that will give the greatest income

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Don't worry, consult your teacher regarding this, s/he might have made mistake in the correction. Or check with your classmates. (just confirming, "charges x dollars for box seats" definitely means the price 'per seat' right? Couldn't mean anything else, could it?)
