The quantity demanded each month of the Sicard wristwatch is related to the unit price given by the equation below, where p is measured in dollars and x is measured in units of a thousand. To yield a maximum revenue, how many watches must be sold? (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)

P=41/0.01X^2+1 (0(less than or equal to)x(less than or equal to)20)

? watches

revenue = quantity * price

r(x) = x*p(x)

= 41x/(0.01x^2+1)

dr/dx = (41-.41x^2)/(.01x^2+1)^2

since the denominator is never 0,

max revenue occurs where

(41-.41x^2) = 0

x = 10
