You operate a gaming Web site, where users must pay a small fee to log on. When you charged $3 the demand was 520 log-ons per month. When you lowered the price to $2.50, the demand increased to 780 log-ons per month.

(a) Construct a linear demand function for your Web site and hence obtain the monthly revenue R as a function of the log-on fee x.
R(x)=

(b) Your Internet provider charges you a monthly fee of $10 to maintain your site. Express your monthly profit P as a function of the log-on fee x.
P(x)=
