Question

A soap factory estimates that the weekly profit (in dollars)
from the production and sale of x cases of soap is given by
P(x) = −5400 + 9.1x − 0.0014x^2
and currently 1000 cases are produced and sold per week. Use the
marginal profit to estimate the increase in profit if the store produces
and sells one additional case of soap per week.
