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.
