Derivatives, Second Derivatives and Profit Function - Lemonade Stand

A. Write a function for your profits for each price you charge. This is done by multiplying (P-.5) times your function (y= -100x + 250). I.e. if your function is Cups Sold = 1000 - 100P, your profit function would be (P - .5)*(1000 - 100P). B. Calculate the first derivative of your profit function, and create another table
