How many units must be sold to produce a revenue of $500?

You will need to solve for x in the following equation:

500 = x(20-0.2x)

factor it out

500 = 20x -0.2x^2

0.2x^2 - 20x + 500 = 0

divide the whole equation by 0.2

x^2 - 100x + 2500 = 0

(x-50)^2

R=50

i got 500=20x-0.2x^2

whats the next step?
