 Question 167742: # A Vancouver travel agency advertises all-expenses-paid trips to the Grey Cup Game for special groups. Transportation is by bus which seats 48 passengers, and the charge per person is \$80, plus an additional \$2 for each empty seat. 1. If there are X empty seats, find the equations for: 1. How many passengers are on the bus and 2. How much does each pay? 2. What are the travel agency's total revenue when there are X empty seats? 3. Find the maximum revenue. I have come up with the following solutions but I believe they want some or all of these answers to be in the form of quadratic equations. 1i)80-x ii)80+2x/(48-x) 2.Total revenue=80*(48-x)+2x 3. Maximum revenue=80*48 If anyone can show me how to create quadratic equations for these questions, I would appreciate it very much. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57424)
