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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2here we can write this equation: \[\Large \left( {2n  1} \right)\left( {2n + 1} \right) = 575\] since 2n1 and 2n+1 are two consecutive odd numbers
