    u can use differentiation to obtain the results on differentiating u have -6p+180=0 or p=30 at this value of p the above expression may be maximum or minimum to check u differentiate (the result once more) now it stands -6 thus at p=30 the second ordr differentiation is neagtive and hence at p=30, D is amximum in order to obtain the max value of D use p=30 in D hope rest u get it...
