let the number of $1 increases be n
Number of cars sold = 1805n
rate per car = 32+n
income = (32+n)(1805n)
= 5760 + 20n 5n^2
d(income)/dn = 20  10n
= 0 for a max/min of income
10n = 20
n = 2
There should be two $1 increases
they should be rented at $34 and they should rent 170 cars for an income of 170(34) or $5780
