 Question 313163: I'm stumped. Given an array of known X and Y values, and a list of *new* X values, how can I solve for what the new Y value will be ? A bit more detail: In Excel, I plotted these known X and Y values by means of a XY Scatter Chart, then asked it to create me a Trend Line, showing me the formula. The formula, for this data, is: y = 14.132x² - 63.03x + 79.647. I need to know how to actually *arrive* at that formula by a more manual means. Thanks! :) Click here to see answer by Fombitz(13828)

 Question 313276: 1. Suppose you are an event coordinator for a large performance theater. One of the hottest new Broadway musicals has started to tour, and your city is the first stop on the tour. You need to supply information about projected ticket sales to the box office manager. The box office manager uses this information to anticipate staffing needs until the tickets sell out. You provide the manager with a quadratic equation that models the expected number of ticket sales for each day x. (x=1 is the day tickets go on sale). Tickets= -0.2x^2+14x+5(this is the governing equation that is referred to in part c below) a. Does the graph of this equation open up or down? How did you determine this? b. Describe what happens to the tickets sales as time passes? c. Solve the governing equation using the quadratic formula. d. Will tickets peak or be at a low during the middle of the sale? How do you know? e. After how many days will the peak or low occur? f. How many tickets will be sold on the day when the peak or low occurs? g. What is the point of the vertex? How does this number relate to your answers in parts e and f? h. How many solutions are there to the equation -0.2x^2+14x+5=0? How do you know? i. What do the solutions represent?
