please help i will give you a medal The function f(x) = −x2 + 48x − 432 models the profit, in dollars, a game developer makes for selling a new game, where x is the number of games 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 x-intercepts. What do these values mean in the context of the problem? (5 points)

    ight so the vertex will be (24,144) and the x intercepts will be (12,0),(36,0)

    okay so the vertex means The turning point of a parabola and x-intercepts means The point where a line crosses the x-axis. The value of x when y = 0

    so the answer for part a would be the vertex of this function is (24,144) which means The turning point of a parabola and for part b the x-intercepts for this function are (12,0) and (36,0) which means The point where a line crosses the x-axis. The value of x when y = 0 ?
