Find an explicit equation for P(x) in terms of x, the number of cupcakes she sells.

A baker sells cupcakes for $3 each. Her revenue, in dollars, is modeled by the function R(x)=3x, where x is the number of cupcakes sold. Her costs can be modeled by the function C(x)=0.02x2+0.5x+50, where x is the number of cupcakes she produces. The function to model her profit in dollars, P(x), is equal to her revenue minus her costs. Find an explicit equation for P(x) in terms of x, the number of cupcakes she sells.
