A school is selling sweaters to raise money. They sell 1200 sweaters when the price is $20. This year they wanna put the price up. A survey tells them that each time they raise they price by $2, they will lose 60 sales. What does the price have to be to get the maximum revenu?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay 1200 * 20 = 24000 lose 60 sales = 1140 * 22 = 25,080 lose 60 more = 1080 * 24 = 25,920 lose 60 more = 1020 * 26 = 26,520 lose 60 more = 960 * 28 = 26,880 lose 60 more = 900 * 30 = 27,000 *GOES DOWN FROM HERE* lose 60 more = 840 * 32 = 26,880 lose 60 more = 780 * 34 = 26520 you see that?
