Homework Help: Algebra

Posted by Aria on Wednesday, July 20, 2011 at 7:26pm.

If the profit equation for the monthly sales of tile sets is P = -x^2 + 56x - 300, how do I find the number of tiles that yeilds the most profit.

x=number of tile sets. The amount of money for costs each month is set at $300.
I saw an answer as 28 tile sets would yeild the highest profit but I don't understand why that is the answer, if it is.
Could you help me? Thanks so much.
