  1. for any quadratic function
    f(x) = ax^2 + bx + c
    the x of the vertex is -b/(2a)
    sub that x value into the function to get the y of the vertex, so

    n(x) = -.3x^2 + 9x + 15
    x of vertex is -9/(2(-.3)) = 15
    n(15 = -.3(225) + 9(15) + 15
    = 82.5

    ticket sales will peak on day 15 and they will sell 83 tickets, ( can't sell partial tickets)

    check for reasonableness of answer
    let x = 14
    n(14) -.3(196) + 9(14) + 15 = 82.2 , < 82.5
    let x = 16
    n(16) = -.3(256) + 9(16) + 15 = 82.2 , < 82.5

    I'll go with my answer
