Terry makes and sells necklaces. He has observed over time that when the price is $ 9 each, he sells an average of 16 per day. If he increases the price, then his average sales fall by 2 per day for each dollar increase. The materials for each necklace cost $7. Express his profit P as a function of x, the number of necklaces sold.

Answer: P(x)=

What i did was:

P(x)=R(x)-C(x)

P(x) = (9+x)(16-2x) - 7(16-2x)

144 - 18x + 16x -2x^2 -112 + 14x

= 32+12x-2x^2
