A truck gets

800/x miles per gallon (mpg) when driven at a constant speed of x mph, where

40 ≤ x ≤ 80.

If the price of fuel is $2.80/gal and the driver is paid $19/hr, at what speed is it most economical for the trucker to drive? (Round your answer to two decimal places.)

I have no idea how I should set this problem up.
