**5. **5 Puzzle: Luxury Boxes Among the many decisions made by sports stadium designers is the number of luxury boxes to build
Suppose that, for a particular stadium under construction, luxury boxes will be sold outright to local businesses and can be constructed at a cost of $300,000 apiece. The stadium designer plans to build 25 boxes and expects, at this number, to sell each for $1 million, for a net profit of $700,000 x 25 = $17.5m
An associate asserts that this is crazy. Since the boxed can be build for $300,000 and sold for around $1m apiece, building only 25 leaves money on the table, even if a small price reduction is needed if more are built
Is the associate correct? What if the price to sell 26 is $950,000?
