90. Demand for pools. Tropical Pools sells an above-ground model for p dollars each.
The monthly revenue from the sale of this model is a function of the price, given by
R = -0.08p^2 + 300p.
Revenue is the product of the price p and the demand (quantity sold).
a) Factor out the price on the right-hand side of the formula.

b) What is an expression for the monthly demand?

c) What is the monthly demand for this pool when the price is $3000?

d) Use the graph (to the right) to estimate the price at which the revenue is maximized.
Approximately how many pools will be sold monthly at this price?

e) What is the approximate maximum revenue?

f) Use the graph (to the right) to estimate the price at which the revenue is zero.
