A.) $22 is the minimum price to avoid a loss {an xintercept where the profit is $0}
B.) $53 is the maximum price to avoid a loss {an xintercept where the profit is $0} C.) $37.50 is the price that results in the greatest profit {the maximum/vertex of the parabola} Ask Algebra House Comments are closed.
