#### Solution

Let C be the total cost function and R be the revenue

∴ C = 180 + 4x

Now, Revenue = Price × Demand

∴ R = P × x = (240 - x)x

∴ R = 240x - x2

∴ "dR"/"dx" = 240 - 2"x" = 2(120 - "x")

Since revenue R is an increasing function, "dR"/"dx" > 0

∴ 2(120 - x) > 0

∴ 120 - x > 0

∴ 120 > x

∴ x < 120

∴ The revenue is increasing for x < 120.
