You have been hired as a marketing consultant to Johannesburg Burger Supply, Inc., and you wish to come up with a unit price for its hamburgers in order to maximize its weekly revenue. To make life as simple as possible, you assume that the demand equation for Johannesburg hamburgers has the linear form q = mp + b, where p is the price per hamburger, q is the demand in weekly sales, and m and b are certain constants you must determine.

When the price is set at $2.00 per hamburger, the sales amount to 3090 per week, but when the price is set at $4.00 per hamburger, the sales drop to zero. Use these data to calculate the demand equation.
