A cable television firm presently serves 5000 households and charrges 20 dollars per month. A marketing survey indicates that each decrease of 1 dollar in the monthly charge will result in 500 new customers. Let R(x) denote the total monthly revenue when the monthly charge is x dollars.

Determine the revenue function R

The back of the book says

R(x)=500x(30-x)

I don't see where the 30 comes from, can anyone tell me?
