a) Construct the profit equation as a function of output using the demand equation. What does this relationship mean in the business sense.

b) Graph the function and find the breakeven points and other critical values. List the profits for every output level starting at 0 and continuing until output is 9,500.

c) Calculate the price that can be charged for every output level in your table. Where is profit a maximum? What is Mr. Mouse's bottom line?
