Question

- A collage arena is the 13,000 seats. Suppose that when tickets are $16, the average attendance is around 7,700 per game. The management suspects that for every dollar that the ticket price is lowered, attendance will increase by 640. What should the ticket prices be to maximize revenue from ticket sales?

Answer #1

Let x be the amount(in dollars) of decrease in the ticket price.

The price of each ticket will be = (16 - x) dollars

The attendance will be = 7700 + 640x

The revenue from ticket sales is the product of price of each ticket and the attendance.

To maximize the revenue, first we have to find the critical point(s) by setting R'(x) to 0 and then we have to do the second derivative test.

Now,

As R''(1.984375) = -1280 < 0, the revenue is maximized at x = 1.984375.

Hence, to maximize the revenue the ticket price should be

A university is trying to determine what price to charge for
tickets to football games. At a price of $30 per ticket,
attendance averages 40,000people per game. Every decrease of $3
adds 10,000 people to the average number. Every person at the game
spends an average of $3.00 on concessions. What price per ticket
should be charged in order to maximize revenue? How many people
will attend at that price?

Suppose the average student’s demand for a team's football
tickets is as follows:
Price $20 $14 $10 $7 $5
Quantity 1 2 3 4 5
a. If this team is a profit maximizer and it can only sell
single game tickets, what price will they charge, how many tickets
will the average student buy, and how much profit will the college
make per student (assuming MC = 0)?
b. If this team is a profit maximizer but instead sells
season-tickets...
