Annual profit in thousands of dollars is given by the function, P(x) = -.1x2 + 50x - 300, where x is the number of items sold, x ≥ 0.

describe the meaning of the number -.1 in the formula, in terms of its meaning in relation to the profit.

describe the meaning of the number -300 in the formula, in terms of its meaning in relation to the profit.

find the profit for 5 different values of x

graph the profit function over its given domain; use the 5 values calculated in part 3 to construct the graph and connect these points with a smooth curve in Excel or another graphing utility. Insert the graph in a Word file and attach the graph in a Word file to the class DB thread.
