where Q is the quantity of seasonal passes sold, P is the price for seasonal pass, Pc is the average price for concession items, and Y is average per capital income in Mapleville.

The local economists estimated that Y is equal to \$12,000 and Monopoly has set Pc at \$10. If Monopoly's MC of serving another customer is equal to \$1, what is the profit maximizing price for seasonal passes?
