    revenue function

    A professional basketball team plays in a stadium that holds 23,000 spectators. With
    ticket prices at $60, the average attendance had been 18,000. When ticket prices were
    lowered to $55, the average attendance rose to 20,000. Based on this pattern, how should
    ticket prices be set to maximize ticket revenue?

    What is the pattern?

    Are we saying that the ticket price can only be changed in increments of $5? If so you will have 2 different maximums.

    Does a $5 decrease always add another 2000 consistantly?
