**Reiny**, Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at 6:58pmlet the number of 10 cent decreases by n

then price of fries = 2.75-.1n

number sold = 425 + 20n

revenue = (2.75-.1n)(425+20n)

d(revenue)/dx = (2.75-.1)(20) + (425+20n)(-.1) = 0 for a max of revenue

55 - 2n - 42.5 - 2n = 0

-4n = -12.5

n = 3.125

I would assume that the decreases would be complete multiples of 10 cents, so there should be 3 decreases or a 30 cent decrease

when n = 3

they will have a price of 2.45

and they will sell 485

revenue = 2.45(485) = 1188.25

check:

if n=2

revenue = 2.55(465) = 1185.75 , which is lower

if n=4

revenue = 2.35(505 = 1186.75 , which is also lower than the n=3 value
