Calculus question

a florida citrus grower estimates that if 60 orange trees are planted, the average yield per tree will be 400 oranges. The average yield will decrease by 4 oranges per tree for each additional tree planted on the same acreage. Express the grower's total yield as a function of the number of additional trees planted, draw the graph and estimate the total number of trees the grower should plant to maximize yield.
