 Question 564173: Hi, I am having a problem forming the equation from a worded problem. I am struggling to understand what the terms mean in this equation and how they worked them out. I understand how to solve and can write quadratic motion equations. I have a good understanding. The problem is: A school concert usually attracts 600 people at a cost of \$10 per person. On avaerage for every \$1 rise in admission price, 50 less people attend the concert. If T is the total amount of takings and n is the number of \$1 increases write a rule for the function which gives T in terms of n. The answer is: T = 6000 + 100n -50n^2 My thinking is that the 6000 represents the miinmum of the independant variable 600 people at \$10 each which totals \$6000. So this is where the parabola will start from the y-axis (i.e at zero). But how did they get the 100n? What does this mean in the context of the problem and why n^2? Why isn't it linear? Like T = 6000 - 50(n) Your help would be appreciated. Click here to see answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15622)
