Challenge 295 : Teapot Trading

A shop has been selling 50 teapots a week at £25 each. Some market research indicates that for each £2 reduction in the price of the teapot, the number sold will increase by 5 each week.

Assuming that this information is reliable, what should the price of these teapots be in order to maximise the weekly takings they bring in?
