Unformatted text preview: quadratic equation that models the expected number of ticket sales for each day x . ( 1 = x is the day tickets go on sale). 48 + 24x 0.5x 2 +-= Tickets (this is the governing equation that is referred to in part c below) a. Does the graph of this equation open up or down? How did you determine this? b. Solve the governing equation using the quadratic formula. c. Will tickets peak or be at a low during the middle of the sale? How do you know? d. After how many days will the peak or low occur? e. How many tickets will be sold on the day when the peak or low occurs? f. How many solutions are there to the equation 48 24 5 . 2 = + +-x x ? How do you know? g. What is the point of the vertex? How does this number relate to your answers in parts e and f? h. What do the solutions represent? Is there a solution that does not make sense? If so, in what ways does the solution not make sense? MAT 117...
