Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

assume they should charge x dollar more for a bacon burger to maximize their profit

she makes 150d per day. 

(150-30)(d+1)=120d+120=120(d+1)

(120-30)(d+2)=90d+180=90(d+2)

(90-30)(d+3)=60(d+3)

(60-30)(d+4)=30(d+4)

they should charge $2 more to maximize the profit
