Please help me work through this.

**Steve**, Wednesday, March 28, 2012 at 5:04pmassuming x is the number of days,

h(x) is the number of hats sold on day x,

h=0 means no hats sold that day, because all were sold, so that is the last day.

h(x) = 0 when x = [-20 +/- sqrt(400+16)]/-.8

x = 50.5

so, some time during the 51st day sales went to zero.
