Consider the closed interval [1, 5] and give the relative and absolute extrema for the interval. 50. The total profit P (x) (in thousands of dollars) from the sale of x hundred thousand pillows is approximated by P (x) = −x3 + 12x2 + 60x − 300, for x ≥ 5.

All rooms are occupied when the hotel charges $90 per day for a room. For every increase of x dollars in the daily room rate, there are x rooms vacant. Each occupied room costs $34 per day to service and maintain. What should the hotel charge per day in order to maximize daily profit? (A) $117 (B) $192 (C) $190 (D) $207 (E) None of these 53. A baseball team is trying to determine what price to charge for tickets. At a price of $18 per ticket, it averages 44,000 people per game. For every increase of $1, it loses 1000 people. Every person at the game spends an average of $8 on concessions. What price per ticket should be charged in order to maximize revenue? (A) $27 (B) $17 (C) $13 (D) $9 (E) None of these 54. If the price charged for a candy bar is p(x) cents, then x thousand candy bars will be sold in a certain city, where x p(x) = 164 − . 10 (i) Find an expression for the total revenue from the sale of x thousand candy bars. (ii) Find the value of x that leads to maximum revenue. (iii) Find the maximum revenue. 55. A local club is arranging a charter flight to Hawaii.
