**Steve**, Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at 11:30amwhat do you mean by "do" the function? They gave it to you.

Surely you know that profit = revenue-cost, and they gave you both of those, so

P(x) = R(x)-C(x)

= 0.0125x^2+412x - (12225+0.00135x^2)

= 0.01115x^2 + 412x - 12225

So when does P(x)=60000? when x=174.48

so, they need 175 customers to make at least 60,000 profit.

See? Not so complicated, once you get past all the words.
