Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Well, actually, it seems that you've made at least one mistake in your computation. But the overall approach appears to be correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Let's go over it step by step using an example.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Suppose you have \(y^2\) And \(y = 6\) What value is \(y^2\) equal to?

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Yes. Correct. Now you must ask yourself if your approach here is consistent with what you did above.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5There's one way to know for sure if it is correct.

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Yes, but you want to know if what you've done is correct, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Actually (x,y) = (25, 361) What the question wants us to do is describe the relationship between the x and y values for the vertex in terms of what is stated in the problem.

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5The first thing you should do is go back and ask yourself what x and f(x) represent.

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Exactly, so now in a single sentence, interpret the values of x = 25 and f(x) = 361 in terms of what each represents.

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5You're on the right track, but do it in a way that shows the relationship. Say it this way: The yoga studio made $361 in profit for the 25 members it processed in its current month.

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5And yes, add "maximum profit" in that sentence as well. You were right with that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5To find the xintercepts, simply replace f(x) with zero, then solve for x.

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5I'm sure you can figure this out on your own if you made it that far.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Now you have to ask yourself if both values for x make sense.

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5If one of them doesn't make sense, you're supposed to discard that value.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Does x = 6 make sense as well?

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Remember, the x and y values always come in pairs. In this case we have (x,y) = (6,0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5How much profit was made from the six memberships?

Hero
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Well, in this case, there is a plausible explanation for the six memberships.

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5If we assume that this is the first month of operation for the yoga studio since its grand opening, as part of its advertisement, the yoga studio could have stated something like, "The first six customers get a free membership".

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5It's a bit of a stretch, but it's a plausible explanation.

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5The other plausible explanation is that the first six members represent the original team who put the business together in the first place so of course they don't make any money off themselves.

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5The question says to explain each value in the context of the problem. We already know there's no such thing as negative members. That is impossible. However, for x = 6, for this particular problem we can't make sense of it either unless we come up with plausible explanations such as what I posted above. That's all you can do for this question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Actually, the other point is (44,0) so you must have made a sign mistake somewhere.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh ok i see my mistake!

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Yes, really. Which basically makes it a bit more difficult to explain why they have no profit after gaining 44 members.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0They could have had a raffle and chose 44 people to get a free membership?

Hero
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5No, according to the graph, after 25 members, they start losing profits, so we have to explain in terms of that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ugh i have no clue >:(

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5The plausible explanation is that the studio can support up to 25 members at a time. If they have more than 25 members, then they have to rent more building space, purchase more equipment, etc.

Hero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Which causes them to lose the profits they gained. We should assume that the business is a small startup.
