 Question 426564: The owner of a video store has determined that the cost C, in dollars, of operating the store is approximately given by C(x)=2x^2-32x+540, where x is the number of videos rented daily. Find the lowest cost to the nearest dollar."Answer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Hi Using the vertex form of a parabola, where(h,k) is the vertex C(x)=2x^2-32x+540 |Completing the square to find the vertex (parabola opens upward) C(x)=2[(x-8)^2 - 64] +540 C(x)=2(x-8)^2 -128 +540 C(x)=2(x-8)^2 +412 |(8,412) the vertex point. \$412 the lowest cost. ```
