The two men want to become rich (that's why they quit being teachers). Thus, they need to decide how many dozens of each cookie they should make for their grand opening. Their decision rests upon three limiting factors:

• The ingredients they have on hand-they have 110 pounds of cookie dough and 32 pounds of icing

• The amount of oven space available---they have room to bake a total of 140 dozen cookies for the grand opening

• The amount of preparation time available---together they have 15 hours for cookie preparation

Looking within the money, the Balkster cookies cost $4.50 a dozen, but will be sold at $6.00 a dozen. The Sullivander cost $5.00 a dozen while being sold for $7.00 a dozen.

Question: How many dozens of each kind of cookie should Mr. Balk and Mr.

Sullivan make so that their profit is as high as possible?
