the revenue R from selling x units of a certain product is given by R=x(200.2x)
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(200.2x)

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
(x50)^2
R=50

i got 500=20x0.2x^2
