Homework Help: Linear Programming

Posted by Deanna on Friday, October 16, 2009 at 8:30pm.

OKay My question is:
Two factories manufacture 3 different grades per paper. the company that owns the factories has contracts to supply at least 16 tons of low grade, 5 tons of medium grade, and at least 20 tons of high grade paper. It cost $1000 per day to operate the first factory and 2000 per day to operate the second. Factory 1 produces 8 tons of low grade, 1 ton of medium grade, and 2 tons of high grade paper in day's operation. Factory 2 produces 2 tons of low grade, 1 ton of medium grade and 7 tons of high grade per day. how many days should each factory be in operation in order to fill the most economically?

Also i have to assign variables to x and y and state a goal plus represent the goal with an equation
then i have to write inequalities that represent the restrictions of this problem in a chart. Then i have to grade the system of inequalities, shade the solution region, and use corner points to analyze data and find the solution. Finally I write my solution in a complete sentence.
Help?
