11. PackEmIn Real Estate is building a new housing development. The more houses it builds, the less people will be willing to pay, due to the crowding and smaller lot sizes. In fact, if the company builds 60 houses in this particular development, it can sell them for $160,000 each, but if it builds 70 houses, it will be able to get only $150,000 each. What is the largest possible revenue the company can get? Round your answer to the nearest dollar.

12. Encouraged by the popularity of your Dungeons and Dragons website, www.mudbeast.net, you have decided to charge users who log on to the site. When you charged a $1.50 access fee, your web counter showed a demand of 270 “hits” per month. After you lowered the price to $0.50, activity increased to 350 “hits” per month. Obtain the monthly revenue R as a function of the access fee x.

13. The two fraternities Sigma Alpha Mu and Ep Sig plan to raise money jointly to benefit homeless people on Long Island. They will sell Starship Troopers Tshirts in the Student Center, but they are not sure how much to charge. Sigma Alpha Mu treasurer Solo recalls that they once sold 100 shirts in a week at $4 each, but Ep Sig treasurer Justino claims that, based on past experience, they can sell 400 per week if they charge $2 each. The university administration charges the fraternities $700 per week for use of the Student Center. What is the largest possible weekly profit, rounded to the nearest dollar?

14. You have just opened a new nightclub, Russ’s Techno Pitstop, but you are unsure how much to charge for the cover charge (entrance fee). One week you charged $9 cover per guest and averaged 372 guests per night. The next week you charged $20 per guest and averaged 240 guests per night. Find the linear demand equation showing the number of guests q per night as a function of the cover charge p.

15. You are the sales manager for Montevideo Productions, Inc., and you are planning to review the prices you charge clients for television advertisement development. You currently charge each client an hourly development fee of $2,500. With this pricing structure, the demand, measured by the number of contracts Montevideo signs per month, is 35 contracts. This is down 10 contracts from the figure last year, when your company charged only $2,000. Construct a linear demand equation giving the number of contracts q as a function of the hourly fee p Montevideo Productions, Inc., charges for development.

16. For the following demand equation, find the largest possible revenue.
$ __________

17. PackEmIn Real Estate is building a new housing development. The more houses it builds, the less people will be willing to pay, due to the crowding and smaller lot sizes.
