    Tax maximisation.

    Determine the tax t per unit that must be imposed to obtain the maximum tax revenue. (Hint: Use the solution of output as a function of t from 2(b) to formulate the tax revenue function.)


    So output was originally  p = 25-2x and cost was  c(x) = 5x+t

    I worked out what the profit maximising value of x was and substituted it in .

     p = 25 - 2(\frac{30+2t}{-4})

    thus  p = 40+t

    But im not sure what I do to formulate the tax revenue function.
