find profit

john owns a hot dog stand.  his profit in dollars is given by the equation P(x)=P=-x^2+14x+54, where x is the number of hot dogs sold. what is the most he can earn?

is that really  positive x²? your profit function is a quadratic function which opens up..that means it goes up to infinity.
