graph below. 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.

C (x) = x3 + 35x + 250
over the interval (0, 10].
The absolute minimum is
(A) less than 105 (B) between 105 and 115 (D) between 125 and 135 (E) more than 135 (C) between 115 and 125 52. A hotel has 290 units. 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
