The effectiveness of a television commercial depends on how many times a viewer watches it. After some experiments an advertising agency found that if the effectiveness $E$ is measured on a scale of 0 to $10,$ then

$$E(n)=\frac{2}{3} n-\frac{1}{90} n^{2}$$

where $n$ is the number of times a viewer watches a given commercial. For a commercial to have

maximum effectiveness, how many times should a viewer watch it?

Agriculture The number of apples produced by each tree in an apple orchard depends on how densely the trees are planted. If $n$ trees are planted on an acre of land, then each tree produces $900-9 n$ apples. So the number of apples produced per acre is

$$A(n)=n(900-9 n)$$

How many trees should be planted per acre to obtain the maximum yield of apples?

Agriculture At a certain vineyard it is found that each grape vine produces about 10 lb of grapes in a season when about 700 vines are planted per acre. For each additional vine that is

planted, the production of each vine decreases by about 1 percent. So the number of pounds of grapes produced per acre is modeled by

$$A(n)=(700+n)(10-0.01 n)$$

where $n$ is the number of additional vines planted. Find the number of vines that should be planted

to maximize grape production.
