    Answer:

    The sum of 2 numbers is 52. Express the product of the numbers, P, as a function of one of the numbers, x.

    the answer is p(x) = -x² + 52x

    Step-by-step explanation:

    let the  two numbers be x and y

    the  sum of the two numbers = x + y

    ≡ x + y = 52

    make y the subject of equation

    y= 52 – x

    to express the product of the numbers, P, as a function of one of the numbers, x. implies that

    P(x) = x(-x + 52)

    finally,

    p(x) = -x² + 52x
