Let's say an online retailer sells tablets. The demand (price)
function is given by p(x)=500−18x, where x is the number of tablets
produced sold and p(x) is the price per week, while the cost, in
dollars per week to produce x tablets is given by C(x)=35000+120x.
Based on this, answer the following questions:
1. Determine the Revenue Function.
2. Determine the number of tablets the retailer would have to
sell to maximize revenue. What is the maximum revenue?

Farmer Hoglund has discovered that on his farm, he can get 30
bushels of corn per acre if he applies no fertilizer. When he
applies N pounds of fertilizer to an acre of land, the marginal
product of fertilizer is 1 - N/200 bushels of corn per pound of
fertilizer.
1. Write down a function that states Farmer Hoglund’s yield per
acre as a function of the amount of fertilizer he uses. (Note: you
will need a bit of calculus...
