Spider Industries is a U.S.-based company that test-marketed an electronic cobweb destroyer in Japan. The company's revenue, R, is a function of the number of destroyers sold, x, using the following formula R = 160x -0.2x^2.

What type of function did Spider Industries use to describe its revenue as a function of sales?

You are planning to take Calculus and you do not recognize R = 160x - 1.2x^2 as a quadratic function?

Mmmmh!
