The business manager of a 90 unit apartment building is trying to determine the rent to be charged. From past experience with similar buildings, when rent is set at $400, all the units are full. For every $20 increase in rent, one additional unit remains vacant. What rent should be charged for maximum total revenue?

**1. What is the maximum total revenue?**

**2. What is the formula for revenues R after x $20 price hikes in the apartment building?**

**3. Graph the function**

**4. Find the maximum revenue (or income) of the apartment building.**

**5. What is the rent that coincides with this maximum revenue?**

**6. What is the outcome of the rent hike of $20 results in 2 additional vacancies instead of 1 additional vacancy? Recalculate questions 3, 5, 6 for this new scenario.**

Step 1

Since we only answer up to 3 sub-parts, we’ll answer the first 3. Please resubmit the question and specify the other subparts (up to 3) you’d like answered.

Initial rent = $400 , and total 90 units are there

For every $20 increase in rent, one additional unit remains vacant

Let him increase $20 x times

So new rent = 400+20x and units occupied = (90-x)

Step 2

Total revenue = (400+2x)(90-x)

Step 3

For maximum revenue R'(x)=0, s...
