a. Does the graph of this equation open up or down? Explain how you determine this.

b. Describe what happens to the tickets sales as time passes.

c. Use the quadratic equation to determine the last day that tickets will be sold.  Show work!

Note. Write your answer in terms of the number of days after ticket sales begin.

e. After how many days will the peak or low occur?  Show work!
