A. the profit function

B. the number of units which produce the maximum profit

C. the maximum profit

D. the price which produces this maximum profit.

A. the profit function
P(x) = x(p(x) - C(x))

solve for P'(x) = 0 and solve for x..

substitute what you found in (B) to P(x)

3. Thank you for your help, can u tell me if this is correct?
P(x) = x(p(x) - C(x))
P(x)=x(1200-150x^2-(900x-4X^3 )
A).P=1200x-150x^2-900x-4x^3= 4x^3-150x^3-300x
B.)P=12x^2-300x^2-300= two answers 1.04356 and 23.9564
C.)1200(1.04356)-150(1.04356^2)-900x(1.04356)-4(1.04356^3)=154
D.)p(x)=1200-900(1.04356)=260.8

A).P=1200x-150x^2-900x-4x^3= 4x^3-150x^3-300x (Although this last expression is correct.
B.)P=12x^2-300x^2-300= two answers 1.04356 and 23.9564
take note of the red ones.. try checking it.. it will affect the answers in C and D..
