Cost and revenue function, calculate the intervals where the profit is increasing?

C(x) = 0.32x^2 - 0.00004x^3

R(x) = 0.848x^2 - 0.0002x^3

the profit function is the difference between cost and revenue, so

simplify terms in brackets...

now can you use the methods you have been taught to find the values of x where P(x) is increasing?
