    Calculus Question - How to find the marginal revenue?

    The marginal revenue function is the differential of the total revenue function.
    For the total revenue function
    TR = 500Q + 3Q2
    where Q is the quantity produced, find the value of the marginal revenue (MR) when
    Q equals 71.
    Give answer to nearest integer value.

    Can someone please show me how to answer this question? Thanks very much

    When a person posts a problem, we assume they have the basic knowledge to at least attempt to work it out. I can tell you that this is a very basic derivative. I recommend you research how ... here's a link to get you started.
