Homework Help: College Algebra

Posted by Meredith on Sunday, April 18, 2010 at 8:02pm.

Can we try this again? I already posted this question and thank you for responding but I just don't understand. I am posting it again because I need to clarify that I have formulas my professor has us use but since I've never come across a problem like this one before I am just a bit confused.

Quadratic Function problem:

When a certain drug is taken orally, the concentration of the drug in the patients bloodstream after t minutes is given by C(t)=0.06t-0.0002t^2, where 0 ≤ t ≤ 240 and the concentration is measured by mg/L. When is the maximum serum concentration reached, and what is that maximum concentration?


In class we were given formulas such as:
f(x)= ax^2 + bx+ c
x= -b/2a
And then an f(x) or whatever the letters are being used in the word problem where you plug in the answer for x back into the original equation. I just don't understand what role the 0 ≤ t ≤ 240 comes in because we haven't done any like this in class yet but it was assigned for hw! help?
