Question: Andy Mendoza makes handcrafted dolls which he sells at craft

Andy Mendoza makes handcrafted dolls, which he sells at craft fairs. He is considering massproducing the dolls to sell in stores. He estimates that the initial investment for plant and equipment will be $25,000, while labor, materials, packaging, and shipping will be about $10 per doll.
He has determined that sales volume is related to price, according to the following linear equation:
v = 4,000 - 80p
