You were named District Manager of the Month at BeBop Records due to a hiring study you conducted. Your study showed that each of 30 salespersons that you supervise average $50,000 in sales each month. Your study also showed that for each new salesperson hired, the average monthly sales would decrease $1,000. You presented this study to the company's CEO. What is the maximum average sales the company can expect with all it's salespersons? Hint: Let x represent the number of new salespeople. Total monthly sales = (number of salespersons)(average monthly sales each)

    Total monthly sales = (number of salespersons)(average monthly sales each) = (30 + x)(50,000 - x)

    I'm very sorry, I don't know your answer since I'm not good with financial mathematics

    The product of consecutive odd integers is 575. What is the largest integer? here's the other one I'm stuck on

    here we can write this equation: \[\Large \left( {2n - 1} \right)\left( {2n + 1} \right) = 575\] since 2n-1 and 2n+1 are two consecutive odd numbers

    so, after a simplification at left side, we get: \[\Large 4{n^2} - 1 = 575\]

    hint: \[\Large {n^2} = \frac{{576}}{4}\]
