A company that produces portable cassette players estimates that the profit P (in dollars) for selling a particular model is P=76x^3+4830x^2320000, 0 is less than or equal to x is less than or equal to 50, where x is the ad expense (in tens of thousands of dollars). using this model, find the smaller of two ad amounts that will yield profit of $800000.

PreCalc 
Reiny,
you must have a method of solving
800000 = 76x^3 + 4830x^2  320000
Wolfram yields two answers,
one of appr 18 , the other appr 59.3
