1 Answer

  • Answer:

    the profit will be $172

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The function given is:

    p(x) = 2(x-9)^2 + 100

    Where x is the price of the each shirt.

    if each shirt is sold for $15,  hen x = 15.

    the profit will be:

    p(15) = 2(15-9)^2 + 100

    p(15) = 2(6)^2 + 100

    p(15) = 2(36) + 100

    p(15) = 72 + 100

    p(15) = 172

    So, the profit will be $172
