I need a little help with this problem...

Number of coputers produced-Profit
50---------------------------\$5100
100--------------------------\$5600
150--------------------------\$1100

A-Find a quadratic function that describes the profit as a function of the number of computers produced.

B-Predict the number of computers that need to be produced to maximize the profit.

C-Predict the max profit, assuming that all business conditions stay the same.

For a i have -1.2x^2+189.7+-1390.... i dont know if its right

And for b i found 79 computers....

and for c i found \$6107.1

i dont think this makes since... this would mean that between 50-100 it would have hit its max and dropped

I get ...

$P = -x^2 + 160x - 400$

max profit at $x = 80$ computers

$P(80) = 6000$
