18. The local Lion’s Club rents out two banquet halls for large meetings and other events. The records show that when they charge \$250 per day for use of the halls, there are an average of 156 bookings per year.
For every increase of \$20 per day, there will be three less bookings. (a) What price per day will bring in
\$61,950 for the year? (b) How many bookings will there be at the price from part (a)?
19. The Jefferson College basketball team has two guards who are 6¿3– tall and two forwards who are
6¿7– tall. How tall must their center be to ensure the
“starting ﬁve” will have an average height of at least
