• A rock club’s profits from booking local bands
depends on the ticket price. Using past receipts,
the owners find that the profit can be modeled
by the function
1) What do t and P represent?
2) What is the maximum profit?
3) How much does the club have to sell the tickets
for in order to achieve the maximum profit?

Challenge Problem
• The local park has 350 feet of fencing for a
rectangular dog park. What dimensions maximize
the area the dogs can play in? What is that area?
1. Write an expression for the perimeter in terms of x
(width) and y (length)
2. Write an expression for the area of the rectangle in
terms of x and y.
3. Solve your perimeter equation for y. Plug that into the
area equation and simplify.
4. Use this equation to find the dimensions (x and y) that
maximize the area.
5. Find the maximum area using these dimensions

Notice how the graph increases. Up 1 over 1. Up 3 over 1. Up 5 over 1.
Describe, in order, the sequence of transformations of each
function and then graph the function by hand.
