A horse-drawn carriage tour company has found that the number of people that take their tour depends on the price charged per customer. The more the company charges for a tour, the fewer people decide to take the tour.

The function c(x)=50+5x represents price charged per customer where x is the number of $5 increases they charge over a rate of $50 per person. 

The function  p(x)=120−2x represents the number of customers expected for the day, where x is the number of $5 increases they charge over a rate of $50 per person.

 

What does (p⋅c)(2) mean about the horse-drawn carriage tour company?

 

  • ​The horse-drawn carriage tour company can expect to take in $6600 when the charge per customer is $40.
  • ​​The horse-drawn carriage tour company can expect to take in $6600 when the charge per customer is $60.
  • The horse-drawn carriage tour company can expect to take in $6960 when the charge per customer is $40.
  • The horse-drawn carriage tour company can expect to take in $6960 when the charge per customer is $60.

(p * c)  =

 

(120 -2x) (50 + 5x)

 

So

 

(p * c) (2)  =

 

(120 - 2*2) (50 + 5*2)  =

 

(116) (60)  = 

 

$6960

 

The last option is correct
