The graph below shows a company's profit f(x), in dollars, depending on the price of erasers x, in dollars, being sold by the company:
GRAPH IS DOWN BELOW VVVV
Part A: What do the xintercepts and maximum value of the graph represent? What are the intervals where the function is increasing and decreasing, and what do they represent about the sale and profit? (5 points)
Part B: If at one time the profit of the company was at least $120 what domain could possibly produce this profit? (2 points)
Part C: What

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0B is asking for the interval where price is at least $120, so between (including) the xvalues where the graph is 120.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0looks like [1, 7] to me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, so the answer would be. The domain that would produce this profit is "1, 7" ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A Labrador leaps over a hurdle. The function f(t) represents the height of the Labrador above the ground, in inches, at t seconds: f(t) = 16t2 + 26t A foxhound jumps over the same hurdle. The table shows the height of the foxhound above the ground g(t), in inches, at t seconds: https://gyazo.com/03fedf1a360f4176c528b31531da0d83 Part A: Compare and interpret the maximum of f(t) and g(t)? (4 points) Part B: Which function has a greater xintercept? What do the xintercepts of the graphs of f(t) and g(t) represent? (4 points) Part C: Determine the yintercepts of both functions, and explain what this means in the context of the problem. (2 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It looks like for g(t), 7.56 inches is the maximum and occurs at 0.7 seconds You have to graph or use b/(2a) to find the maximum for f(t)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you don't know how to do it that way, just graph it on desmos and it will spit out the maximum for you. You're going to need the graph for part B and C anyway

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is this right? A. The maximum for g(x) is at time 0.6, and the maximum for f(x) is at (13/16,169/16) 169/6=10.5625 inches at time 0.8125 seconds?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes. for xintercepts, you can set f(t) equal to 0 and factor to solve for t. For g(t) the xintercepts are the distances where g(t) = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And is this right for B. f(t) has greater x intercepts, meaning that when the labrador will land later than the fox when it jumps over the hurdle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because im confused, I dont know what goes where. There are so many f(t), g(t), t, f(t) = 16t2 + 26t, etc..... And I just get so confused from what to put in where to solve it.
