Quadratic Functions and Word Problems

Please see the attached file - Don't mind the graphing portion, work what can be worked. I have to input answers not write out the whole equation.

7. Find the vertex, line of symmetry, and the maximum or minimum value of a quadratic function, and graph the function.f(x) = -x +6x +2

The vertex is

8. Find the vertex,line of symmetry, and the maximum or minimum value of a quadratic function, and graph the function.f(x) = -2x +2x +1 . The x-coordinate of the vertex is

9. Find the x-intercepts and y-intercepts f(x) =-x +2x +24

The x-coordinate of the intercepts are x =

10. The carpenter is building a rectangular with a fixed perimeter of 320 ft. What are the dimensions would yield the maximum area ? What is the maximum area?

The length that would yield the maximum area is _________ft

11. Aki's bicycle has determined that when x hundred are built, the average cost per bicycle is given by c(x) = (0.4)x +1.8x +8.926, where c(x) is an hundreds of dollars.
How many bicycles should the shop build to minimize the average cost per bicycle?
