Important information about Quadratic Inequality

A person's revenue "R" (in dollars) on the sale of "X" fruitcakes is determined by the formula R = 50x - x squared. Her cost "C" in dollars for producing "X" fruitcakes is given by the formula C = 2x + 40. For what value of "X" is the person's profit positive? (Profit = revenue - cost).

Economy's Lorenz Curve

Author's explanation of a Lorenz curve: Economists use a cumulative distribution called a Lorenz curve to describe the distribution of income between households in a given country. Typically, a Lorenz curve is defined on [0,1] with endpoints (0,0) and (1,1) and is continuous, increasing, and concave upward. The points on this cu
