The amount of money a certain company has can be modeled with the line y=-265x+2800, where x is the number of workers the company decides to hire. What is the maximum number of workers the company can hire before the company has no money left and goes bankrupt?

 y=-265x+2800

 

The company will have no money when y =  0.....so

 

0 = -265x + 2800      subtract 2800 from both sides

 

-2800 = - 265x      divide both sides by -265

 

≈10.56  = x

 

So....they can hire a max of 10 workers and still remain solvent....(the 11th worker will sink them )
