Real-World Applications

  1. An athletic stadium holds      105,000 fans. With a ticket price of $22, the average attendance has been      32,000. When the price dropped to $16, the average attendance rose to      50,000. Assuming that attendance is linearly related to ticket price, what      ticket price would maximize revenue? Round ticket price to the nearest ten      cents.
