Revenue = cost per unit * total units

x(500+3(90-x)= 500x+270x-3x^2
770x-3x^2
then take the derivative of this= 770-6x
770-6x=0
x=128.3

wrong one, this is the right one:

x(500+5(90-x)= 500x+450x-5x^2
950x-5x^2=190x-x^2
then take the derivative of this= 190-2x
190-2x=0, x=95

so maximum revenue is 45125

This answer did not come out correct

revenue R = (90 - x)(500 + 5x)

maximizing R is the same as maximizing R/10, call it r

45000+450x-500x-5x^2=x^2-10x+4500

derivative=2x-10=0, x=5

so rent charged should be 500+5*5=525

my bad thought it's to miximize revenue

hmm it is still not coming out correct

revenue = R(x) = (500 + 5x)(90 - x)
R(x) = -5x2 - 50x + 45000
dR/dx = -10x-50=0, x=-5
500+5(-5)=475, how is it now? got the sign wrong before.........
