HELP IT'S REALLY EASY
The profit depends on the amount x that you charge for a box. The equation p= 0.5x^2 + 25x  150 models the profit. What's the smallest amount that can be charged to make a profit of at least $125?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You want 0.5x^2 + 25x  150 >=125. Solve the quadratic inequality and eliminate extraneous solutions.
