In the previous set of exercises, you worked with the quadratic equation R = x 2 + 100 x that modeled the revenue received from selling backpacks at a price of x dollars. You found the selling price that would give the maximum revenue and calculated the maximum revenue. Now you will look at more characteristics of this model.
Graph the equation R = x 2 + 100 x . Find the values of the x -intercepts.

During two years in college, a student earned $9,500. The second year, she earned $500 more than twice the amount she earned the first year.

9500=500+2x

9500-500=9000 9000÷2×=4500 X=4500
Debra
X + Y = 9500....... & Y = 500 + 2X so.... X + 500 + 2X = 9500, them X = 3000 & Y = 6500
