Someone Please Help!!
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 xintercepts. What do these values mean in the context of the problem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the amount of profit gain is located in the yaxis. The vertex in max is located on the highest yaxis. Nothing goes further than that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Xintercept is where the graph touches the xaxis. So what is y when a point is on the xaxis?
