**Reiny**, Tuesday, October 18, 2011 at 12:00amp(x) = -5x^2 + 400x - 2550

p'(x) = -10x + 400

= 0 for a max of p(x)

10x = 400

x = 40 -----> answer for b)

p(40) = -5(40^2) + 400(40) - 2550 = 5450 -- > a)

for c)

solve

4000 = -5x^2 + 400x - 2550

-5x^2 + 400x - 2550

= -5(x^2 - 80x) - 2550

= -5(x^2 - 80x + 1600 - 1600) - 2550

= -5(x + 40)^2 + 8000 - 2550

= -5(x + 40)^2 + 5450

5450 x 1000 = $5,450,000

b. x = 40

40 x 1000 = $40000

c. Between $22 971 & 57 029
