Homework Help: Algebra 2 Linear Programming

Posted by Chauncey on Tuesday, January 22, 2008 at 3:31pm.

I think this is an easy question but i just wanted make sure i have the right answer

Could you check my work


Some students make and sell jewelry in their spare time. Every week they have an avaiable 10,000 beads of various colors and sizes. They only have 20 hours to work on the jewelry. Each necklace takes 30 minutes to make and each bracelet takes 20 minutes to make. Only 50 beads are placed on each necklace,and 200 beads on each bracelet(yes the bracelet has more beads then the necklace, not a typo). The profit on every necklace is $3.50 and the profit on every bracelet is $2.50. The students want to make as much money as possible.

Define variable: x= necklace
y= bracelets

Write constraints

Write objective function for profit: i think it is P=3.5X+2.5Y

State the vertices in a chart....if i could just get the vertices that would be nice....i think it is (50,30)

Evaluate the profit for each point, but i think there is only one point in this problem

What is the maximum profit

i think it is 3,400

thanks for everything
