I have a problem that I need help with. I tried to solve it, but I don't know how. I don't have much trouble solving simpler min and max problems, but when they start throwing in more numbers, I get confused.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The landlord of a 40-unit apartment building is planning to increase the rent. Currently residents pay $700/month. Four units are vacant. A real estate agency has found that, in this market, every $25 increase in monthly rent results in one more vacant unit. What rent should the landlord charge to maximize revenue?

I know I have to come up with something and get the derivative of that then find the critical number, but if I can't get the first part, I can't continue to solve the problem...

Thanks
