ConceptIncreasing and Decreasing Functions

#### Question

The price P for demand D is given as P = 183 + 120 D – 3D2.
Find D for which the price is increasing.

#### Solution

The given function is p = 183 + 120 D – 3D^2

∴ (dp)/(dD)=120-6D

Now (dp)/(dD)=0⇒120-6D=0⇒D=20

For increasing the price

(dp)/(dD)>0

120-6D>0

-6D>-120

D<120/6

D<20

Demand and price cannot be negative
∴ Price is increasing in the internal (0, 20).
