    The problem says "revenue equals articles sold * price of article". Have you multiplied those?

    Yes, you do.

    The confusion here may arise from the fact that the asterisk symbol: * is being used to indicate multiplication.

    So:
    "The revenue úR thousand accruing from selling d thousand articles is calculated by:
    revenue equals articles sold * price of article"

    means:
    "The revenue úR thousand accruing from selling d thousand articles is calculated by:
    revenue equals articles sold \times price of article"

    I deplore the use of * to mean "multiplied by" outside of the context of computer languages.
