A florida citrus grower estimates that if 60 orange trees are planted the average yield per tree will be 400 oranges. Th average yield will decease by 4 oranges per tree for each additional tree planted on the same acreage. How many trees should the grower plant to maximize the total yield? i am not sure how to set up the function... thanks
