SOLUTION

If the number n of calculators sold per week varies with the price p in dollars according to the equation n = 300 - 20p, what would be the total weekly revenue from the sale of \$10 calculators?

(A) \$100
(B) \$300
(C) \$1,000
(D) \$2,800
(E) \$3,000

Substitute 10 for p: n = 300 - 20*10 = 100.

The total weekly revenue = 10*100 = 1,000.

Total Weekly revenue(R) = no. of calculators(n) * price/calculator(p)

From the equation, n could be determined:
n = 300 - 20p = 300 - 20*10 = 300 - 200 = 100

R = np = 100 * 10 = 1000

Ans is (C).

(C) \$1,000
(D) \$2,800
(E) \$3,000

Putting p = 10, n = 100
So weekly revenue = 10*100 = 1000 - Option C)

revenue = no of calculators sold * price ;

n= 300 -20p;

N varies with p ;

p=10;
n= 300 -200 =100;

revenue = 100 * 10 = 1000\$;

For p = 10; n = 100

Total sales collection = 100 * 10 = 1000
