1. Thanks guys

3. 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.

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

6. then what is it then it looks like a homework problem?

7. It was a question on a test that I had already taken.
