The function f(x) = −x2 + 44x − 384 models the daily profit, in dollars, a shop makes for selling donut combos, where x is the number of combos sold and f(x) is the amount of profit.
Part A: Determine the vertex. What does this calculation mean in the context of the problem? (5 points)
Part B: Determine the xintercepts. What do these values mean in the context of the problem? (5 points)
CAN YOU GVM THE ANSWERS PLEASE

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when we say x = 22 and y = 100 that means when 22 combos are sold, the profit is 100 dollars

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(22,100) is the vertex at the highest point, so the most profit we can get is $100 and that happens when 22 combos are sold

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(12,0) and (32,0) are the xintercepts xintercept (12,0) when x = 12, the value of y is 0 so when 12 combos are sold, the profit is $0 xintercept (32,0) when x = 32, the value of y is 0 so when 32 combos are sold, the profit is $0

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1anything in between x = 12 and x = 32 means you'll have positive profits otherwise you will have 0 profit or negative profit (you lose money or owe it)

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1negative profit = you lost money ie you spent more than what you made

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1example you send $10 but you only make $6 so you lost $4 (610 = 4)

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1`Part B: Determine the xintercepts. What do these values mean in the context of the problem?` the xintercepts are 12 and 32. As ordered pairs they are (12,0) and (32,0). They represent the points where the profit is $0. This is where you break even. You don't gain any money and you don't lose any money.
