The profits of a company are found by subtracting the company's costs from its revenue. If a company's cost can be modeled by 14x + 120,000 and its revenue can be modeled by 40x - 0.0002x2, what is an expression for the profit?

    ok cool so what we have to do is is subtract the costs from revenue: profits: (40x - 0.0002x^2) - (14x + 120,000) remember what i just taught you? do the same thing here

    thats because you can't: profits = 40x - 0.0002x^2 - 14x - 120,000 profits = -0.0002x^2 + 26x -120,000 <--
