The manager of a 100unit apartment complex knows from experience that all units will be occupied if the rent is $800 per month. A market survey suggests that, on average, one additional unit will remain vacant for each $10 increase in rent. What rent should the manager charge to maximize revenue?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0800 * 100 = 80000 810 * 99 = 80190 900 * 90 = 81000 1000 * 80 = 80000 (800 + 10n) (1001n) = revenue...seems about right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(800 + 10(3)) (100  3) = (830)(97) = 80510 that look like a good equation to use :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(800+10n)(100n) 80000 +200n 10n^2 200 20n = 0 ... n=200/20 = 20/2 = 10 lets see if it works :)
