The ticket office at Orchestra Center estimates that if it charges x dollars for box seats for a concert...? ...it will sell 50 – x box seats. The function S = 50x – x2 gives the estimated income from the sale of the box seats. (this is the rest of the problem) i cant figure this out. if you can please explain it it will be a big help please and thank you:)

Correct. 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.

Umm, you figured out the problem totally right. Do check again if you copied the question correctly. Is there a chance of a printing or typing error where the question was stated?

The ticket office at Orchestra Center estimates that if it charges x dollars for box seats for a concert, it will sell 50 - x box seats. 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

Don'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?)
