**Shell**, Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 9:25pmA farmer buys two varieties of animal feed. Type A contains 9 ounces of oats and 2 ounces of corn per pound. Type B contains 5 ounces of oats and 10 ounces of corn per pound. The farmer wants to combine the two feeds so that the resulting mixture has at least 80 pounds of oats and at least 55 pounds of corn. The farmer wants to buy not more than 300 pounds of Type A feed and not more than 175 pounds of Type B feed. Type A feed costs him 18 cents per pound, and Type B feed costs him 19 cents per pound. How many pounds of each type should the farmer buy to minimize the cost?
