Step 1

The problem involves the revenue function and its graph (a parabola). Note that the units x and R(x) are in thousands .

Step 2

(Taking into account the units ) R(2) =\$72000 is interpreted as the revenue generated when 2000 units are produced.

Step 3

To determine the maximum revenue , note that the equation R(x)=x(40-2x)=-2x^2+40x represents...
