snookers lumber must produce and sell ?
___ units of lumber

and

___ units of plywood to make a profit of $17170

    "... the mill turns out three times as many units of plywood as lumber"

    If L stands for the units of lumber, then 3L is the number of units of plywood.

    "it makes a profit of $20 on a unit of lumber and $50 on a unit of plywood"

    $20*L is the profit on lumber, and
    $50*(3L) is the profit on plywood.

    Total profit = $17170 = $20*L + $50*(3L)
    Solve for L.
