The demand curve for tickets at an amusement park is:

Q = D(p) = 1400 - 46p, p > 0

The marginal cost of serving a customer is $11.

Using calculus and formulas (but no tables or spreadsheets) to find a solution, how many tickets will be sold at the profit-maximizing price?

Q=1400-46p, p>0
On rearranging we get
46p=1400-Q
p=(1400/46)-(Q/46)
