The daily profit made by a game manufacturer is modelled by the equation P=-10(x-60)(x-15), Where P dollars is the profit and x dollars is the price of each game. a) Determine the x intercepts of this equation. b) What do the x intercepts represent in this situation ? Explain.

Set each factor equal to 0: (x-60) = 0 x = 60 (x-15) = 0 x = 15 So the x-intercepts are x=15, 60 These stand for the prices that if a store sold the games at, they would not make any money.

so they would be the Max and Min ?

Not really. They are the prices that if they sell games at that price then they will not make any money and they will not lose any money.

oh ok, Thanks!
