    Pf-Pi/Tf-Ti per acre =

    Pf-600/(36-30)

    Pf-600/6, a 20% increase in the number of trees per acre.

    Assume Pf=720,

    A 20% increase in the number of peach trees per acre yields a 20% increase in peaches.

    Assume Pf=600

    A 20% increase in the number of peach trees per acre yields a 0% increase in peaches.

    If you get 600 peachs for every 30 tress, you get 20 peaches per tree. If you increase the number of trees to 36, and you get 20 peaches per tree, you will get 720 peachs for the 36 trees. There will be 120 peaches more for an increase in 6 trees.
