    First, derive a marginal revenue curve (like you did in your previous post.) So,
    P=50000, Q=1, TR=50000, MR=50000
    P=40000, Q=2, TR=80000, MR=30000
    P=30000, Q=3, TR=90000, MR=10000
    and so on.

    b) he makes 3 cars, charges 30,000 each, and makes 10,000 profit.

    c) He makes 5 cars, charges the maximum each buyer will pay TR=150,000 ...
