P=$35-0.02Q where P=selling price/unit and Q=quantity sold/unit.

on the other hand, management estimates that the average cost of manufacturing and sellling the product will decrease as the quantity sold increases. they estimate:

C=$4Q+$8000.

where C=cost to produce and sell Q/year.

The firm's management wishes to produce and sell the product at the rate that will maximize profit, that is, income minus cost will be a maximum. what quantity should the decision makers plan to produce and sell each year.

I know the answer is 775 units and i have to take derivatives of something because it's asking for a maximum, but how do i put the two equations together.
