I need help with maximizing profits
Posted:

The Brick Oven Bakery sells more loaves of bread when it reduces its price, but then its profits change. the function y= 100(x1.75)^2 + 300 models the bakery's profit, in dollars, where x is the price of a loaf of bread in dollars.
a. What price should the bakery charge to maximize its profits?
b. What is the maximum profit?
Help would be greatly be apreciated. : )
