Solve the problem.
If a manufacturer charges q dollars each for footballs, then he can sell
3000 – 150q footballs per week. Find the polynomial R(q) that represents
the revenue for one week. Find the weekly revenue if the price is $8 for each football.
I don't understand how to do this word solving problem. I need to show my work and do not understand how to do this. Please help. Thanks.
You have been told the formula for the number sold per week. Thet is the R(q0 formula. Multiply that by the price (q) to obtain the revenue (cash received) per week. It is that simple. Then substitute $8 for q to get the numerical revenue value is $8 is charged per football.
This is hardly a 'word solving' problem. It is just following directions.
