    Answer:

    A. The answer is our unit prices when our profit is 0

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The zeros are the x-intercepts, when the curve passes through the x-axis.

    I’m going to call our function P

    P(x)=-0.5x^2+221x-224 is equal to 0 (our profit is equal to 0) when x (the unit price is such and such)

    The answer is our unit prices when our profit is 0
