 Question 175899: 1. 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 + 12x + 11 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. Use the quadratic equation to determine the last day that tickets will be sold. (Note: Write your answer in terms of the number of days after ticket sales begin.) d. Will tickets peak or be at a low during the middle of the sale? How do you know? They will peak in the middle of sales because the graph opens down. 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? (0,11) h. How many solutions are there to the equation ? How do you know? i. What do the solutions represent? Is there a solution that does not make sense? If so, in what ways does the solution not make sense? Click here to see answer by stanbon(57203)

 Question 172696: A water pipe of fixed length L has a carrying capacity that depends on the inner diameter of the pipe. The pipe initally has inner diameter D, but over many years, as mineral deposits accumulate inside the pipe, its carrying capacity is reduced. a. give a quadratic function f(t) that models the carrying capacity of the pipe as a function of the thickness t of mineral deposits. Your function will be in terms of the constants D and L and the variable t. (HINT: the volume of a cylinder is pi*r^2*h) b. show that f(1/4d)= 1/4*f(0), and my book says to make a diagram illustrating this fact. If you could make the diagram that would be great, but I would be satisfied with an explanation of what to put in the diagram and how it should look. I would really appreciate any help on this problem! Please and Thank you in advance. Please explain step by step. Click here to see answer by psbhowmick(529)
