A manufacturer estimates that the profit P from producing x units of a commodity is P=-x^2+40x-100 dollars per week. What is the maximium profit he can realize in one week?

I was going to take the derivative of the equation and set it equal to 0 and then plug it back in but it didn't work. The answer is 300 but I do not know how to get this.
