## Homework Statement

An airline finds that if it prices a ticket at $200, it will sell 300 more tickets per day. It estimates that each $10 price reduction will result in 30 more tickets sold per day. Find the ticket price and number of tickets sold that will maximize the airline's revenue. Use calculus to solve.

## Homework Equations

This is what I need help with; I know how to find the maximum and minimum of an equation, but I can't figure out how to make an equation for this problem. It needs to be in y= form for me to solve but I'm struggling to figure it out.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I came up with $200-10x=300+30x

but I can't work with that since it's not in y= and I don't think I set the variables up right anyways. Please help! I can't find the max revenue until I find the actual equation! Thanks
