x=additional trees planted total yield = numtrees*yield per tree numtrees = x+25 yield per tree = 500-10x total yield = (x+25)(500-10x) to maximize yield, differentiate and set equal to 0 y' = (x+25)*-10 + (500-10x) = 0 10(x+25) = 500-10x 20x = 250 x = 12.5 to maximize yield 25+12.5 trees should be planted
