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=60050t . Determine The Ticket Price That Will Allow Script & Cue To Break Even .(Note Breaking Even Means That Revenue=Cost).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If revenue = cost then R = C, and \[50t^2+300t=60050t\] Make one side equal to 0, then you can solve this with the quadratic formula, factoring, or completing the square.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now you have to use the quadratic equation to solve for t For quadratic equations \[at^2+bt+c=0\] \[t=\frac{ b \pm \sqrt{b^24ac} }{ 2a }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok. 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
