Q:

y=-6x^2+100x-180 x=selling price of each soccer ball y=daily profit from soccer balls The vertex is located at (8.33, 236.67). What does this point represent in context?

Accepted Solution

A:
In the figure we have the graphic of this equation. So, the vertex is the maximum of this function. This point means that the maximum daily profit from soccer balls is:

[tex]y = 236.67[/tex]

And this happens when the selling price of each soccer ball is:

[tex]x = 8.33[/tex]

So if you want to get the best daily profit, this is the price you must sell each soccer ball.
