okay sorry. How can I be certain that the profit is being maximized?

But how is it -4, I am confused

I got 20755 when I plugged 24 in and -685 when I plugged 4 in, is this correct?

**Calculus**

Michael I have a question for you about the simplifying and taking a derivative

**Factoring**

This is for -3p^2+84p-288, but I am also stuck on the other problem

**Factoring**

I didn't think you were going to answer the other question. Now I have -3(p^2-28p+96) I am now stuck I eventually need this to be set to equal zero

**Factoring**

I took out the three to get 3(-p^2+31) but my answer is not making any sense with the question I am being asked because of my p value must be between 18 and 28. HELP

**Factoring**

How do I factor -3p^2+66p+9

**Factoring**

How do I factor -3p^2+84p-288

**Calc**

No, But should I charge $24 to get the largest weekly profit?

**Calc**

So is it -3(p-24)(p+4) I have to find which will give me my largest profit so I need to set them equal to zero. That would then be $24, right? How do I determine max possible weekly profit?

**Calc**

Wait, the other one is wrong, it is -3(p-24)(p-4). So the max possible weekly profit is $24 dollars??? Now how do I determine the max possible weekly profit and be certain the profit is maximized?

**Calc**

I got -3(p^2-28p+96) Now How do I factor this further I need to eventually set it equal to zero

**Calc**

That is wrong too Now I got -3p^2+84p-288 Is this right, I cannot figure out how to factor it though

**Calc**

I made a mistake it should be -296 but I do not think this is right because I know I am supposed to factor this and I cannot get it to factor.

**Calc**

I got -3p^2+84p+298 Is this right?

**Calc**

Profit=p(-p^2+33p+9)-9(-p^2+33p+9)+100 How do I simplify this so I can take the derivative

**Calc**

We did what Matt said but we do not know what to do next, our teacher told us to set the derivative equal to zero and then factor to get more than one answer and say which one maximizes the profit but we cannot solve P'=0

**Calc**

I am confused on how you did the cost part. I think I got P' but I don't see this in your work. I know I have to set P' equal to zero but I don't know if I have to factor or something first

**Calc**

For the first part I took R' and set this equal to zero to get 22, is this right too.

Demand is q=-p^2+33p+9 copies of a book sold per week when price is p dollars. Can you help determine what price the company should charge to get the largest revenue? I solved this as a Max Revenue problem and got x=0 and x=22 so the books should be sold for $22 each. IS THIS ...
