a. Find the total revenue, R(x).
b. Find the total profit, P(x).
c. How many smartphones must the company sell in order to maximize profit?
d. What is the maximum profit?

    R(x) = x*p(x) = x(280-.4x)
    P(x) = R(x)-C(x) = x(280-.4x) - (5000+.6x^2)
    = -x^2 + 280x - 5000

    dP/dx = -2x + 280
    max profit at x = 140

    now figure P(x) and p(x)
