PLEASE HELPPP The Revenue For The School Play Is Given By R=-50t^2+300t , Where ''T'' Is The Ticket Prince In Dollars. The Cost To Produce The Play Is Given By :C=600-50t . Determine The Ticket Price That Will Allow Script & Cue To Break Even .(Note Breaking Even Means That Revenue=Cost).

If revenue = cost then R = C, and \[-50t^2+300t=600-50t\] Make one side equal to 0, then you can solve this with the quadratic formula, factoring, or completing the square.

So the equation is now \[-50t^2+350t-600=0\] Does that make sense?
anonymous
  • anonymous
YES

But Is That The Final Answer , If Not What More Do I Have To Do ?

now you have to use the quadratic equation to solve for t For quadratic equations \[at^2+bt+c=0\] \[t=\frac{ -b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} }{ 2a }\]

Use the equation we found above to pick out a, b, and c then plug them into the formula

x=-3 and x2 =-4 right ?

I got 3 and 4, which makes sense for the result because price can't be negative. It looks like you may have divided by 50 instead of -50
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ohh.

i did

ok. so for an answer, I'd go with 3. If you graph the parabola it looks like this, so the play is only profitable if ticket prices are between $3 and $4. $3 is the breakeven price where they start making a profit. Above $4 tickets are priced to high to make a profit |dw:1439850211785:dw|
