**pre-calculus**

just for readability, suppose u = cosx Then you have 6u^2-5u-6=0 (3u+2)(2u-3) that means cosx = -2/3 cosx = 3/2 I guess you can take it from there, ok?

**Math**

If x>=3, |x-3| = x-3 |3-x| = x-3 So, 2x-6 = 1 2x = 7 x = 7/2 If x < 3, |x-3| = 3-x |3-x| = 3-x So, 6-2x = 1 2x = 5 x = 5/2 In either case, |x-3| and |3-x| are the distance of x from 3. Twice that distance = 1, so x is 1/2 away from 3, in either direction.

3√(3-x) = -3/2 √(3-x) = -1/2 3-x = 1/4 x = 11/4 But, that does not fit the original equation. Maybe you meant ∛(3-x) = -3/2 3-x = -27/8 x = 51/8

There's no guarantee that a single parabola will pass through all four points. So, let's pick the fitrst three and see what happens. If y = ax^2+bx+c, then a+b+c = 7 4a+2b+c = 20 9a+3b+c = 43 3a+b = 13 5a+b = 23 2a = 10 a = 5 b = -2 c = 4 y = 5x^2-2x+4 Luckily, (4,76) ...

**Calculus**

P'(x) = 60x^3 + 30x^2 So, P(x) = 15x^4 + 10x^3 + c If you meant the profit is -50 when no cheese is sold, then P(0) = -50, and c=50. So, P(x) = 15x^4 + 10x^3 - 50 Now plug in x=3 to find P when 300 lbs are sold.
