Homework Help: math 11

Posted by Maddy on Tuesday, November 16, 2010 at 8:33pm.

Please help this question is from my unit on linear programing and I'm having trouble completing it.
A company manufactures bicycles and tricycles. The total number of frames the company manufactures cannot exceed 80 per month. It takes the company 1 hour to assemble a bicycle and 2 hours to assemble a tricycle. The assembly machine is only available for 100 hours each month. If the company makes a profit of $50 on each bicycle and $70 on each tricycle, determine the number of bicycles and tricycles that will maximize profits each month. Indicate the maximum profit the company can make each month.
This is what I have so far: x=#of bicycles y=#of tricycles
x>=0 y>=0 P=50x +70y
Now I don't know what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
