The monthly cost C of producing x widgets (in dollars) is modeled by the function shown below.
C(x) =2500 + 4.8x + 0.002x^2
In this model 2500 represents fixed monthly costs and 4.8 is the individual cost of each unit being produced. The term 0.002x^2 represents additional costs that are significant only when the production level x is large. Such costs might include additional machinery, time-and-a-half pay, etc. If the maximum monthly cost the company can sustain is $10,500, determine the maximum production level. Round your answer down to the next whole number.

Do I just plug in the $10,500 into the formula C(x) =2500 + 4.8(10,500) + 0.002(10,500) ^2?
