A supermarket would like to sell 1000KG of apples at 20.18 dollars per Kg

- the supermarket will sell 0.1kg per hour
- every 0.10 dollars per kg reduction in the price accumulatively increases the sales by 1 %
- every hour the quality of the product deteriorates resulting in accumulative decrease of 0.5% in the amount of apples sold per hour
