An automobile dealer can sell 12 cars per day at a price of $21,000. He estimates that for each $300 price reduction he can sell two more cars per day. If each car costs him $18,000, and fixed costs are $1000, what price should he charge to maximize his profit? [*Hint*: Let *x* = the number of $300 price reductions.]

How many cars will he sell at this price?

Step 1

Given,

Number of cars sell in a day = 12

Price of a car is $21,000.

For each car $300 price reduction if he can sell two more cars per day.

Let be x unit 300 price reduction.

2x units increases in sale of car

Price = 21000 – 300x

Car sold = 12 + 2x

R(x) = (21000- 300x) (12+2x)

Cost; C(x) = 1000 + 18000(12+2x)

Then

Step 2

For critical ...
