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)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The vertex of a parabola that opens down, is the maximum point of the parabola. In this case, the maximum point is the maximum daily possible profit. the vertex in a form of (h,k): k  the maximum possible daily profit h  how many combos do you have to sell to reach this max. profit.
