After much discussion over months or years, i forget how long, Wilkerson's wife became pregnant. one day Cruz decides to test God, he basically prayed--God if you are real let the baby be born a boy-- it was a boy.

    Write the price as an expression with x as a variable, then write the number sold as an expression with x as a variable. The revenue is price times number sold. This should give you an equation.

    Can someone put it into a language I understand please? Thanks. =)

    (I just want the equation for it.. I can solve it from there.)
    This is clearly a homework problem in either a calculus class or an economics class.

    Actually it isn't a homework problem. But anyway. I figured it out.
