 Question 103381This question is from textbook Beginning Algebra : The price of an item is given by p=2x^2 - 100 Find the polynomial that represents the revenue generated from the sale of x items. If you could please tell me what you are doing step by step, that would really help me to understand the way this equation is solved. This question is from textbook Beginning Algebra Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15747)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The price of an item is given by p=2x^2 - 100 Find the polynomial that represents the revenue generated from the sale of x items. ; They don't want to solve it, just write an equation that will give you the amt of revenue for a given number of items sold (x) : They tell you two things Price (p) = 2x^2 - 100 and The number of items is given as the value of x : We know that revenue (R) = number of items sold (x) * the price (p), therefore: R = x * (2x^2 - 100) : Multiply what's inside the brackets and you have: R = 2x^3 - 100x; this is what they want : Did this help you?
