I need help with just a few modelling type quadratics questions.
1) y = miles per gallon x= speed of car
y=-0.01x2 + 0.975x +16, x > 0
a) Use the model to find two speeds at which the car has a fuel consumption of 32.5 mpg.
b) Rewrite y in the form A-B(x-C)2
- I have B as 0.01 and C as 48.75. However I have 16 for A and the answer booklet says it is 39?? I don't know how to get to that answer.
2) A fertiliser company uses a model to determin how the amount of fertilser used, f kilograms per hectare, affects the grain yeild g, measures in tonnes per hectare.
g= 6 + 0.03f - 0.00006f2
a) One farm currently uses 20 kilograms of fertiliser per hectare. How much more feriliser would he need to use to increase his yeild grain by 1 tonne per hectare?
3) A football stadium has 25 000 seats. The football club knows that they will sell only 10,000 tickets if each ticket costs £30. They also expect to sell 1,000 more tickets every time the price goes down by £1.
a) The number of tickets sold, t, can be modelled by the linear equation
where £p is the price of each ticket and M is a constant. Find the value of M.
The total revenue, £r, can be calculated by multiplying the number of tickets sold by the price of ach ticket. This can be written as:
b)Rearrange r into the form A-B(p-C)2 where A, B and C are constants to be found.
c) Using your answer to part b or otherwise, work out how much the football club should charge for each ticket if they wanted to make maximum amount of profit.

So for question one, you need to find the x values for which y=32.5

Thank you again.

You forgot to take away the 47.75^2 on b and as it is both - they add and when -0.01 it becomez 39.765625 or something
