A nutritionist wishes to minimize the cholesterol content while satisfying the minimum daily requirements (300,13,40) for calcium, iron and vitamin C respectively.

Assume that the number of ounces of the foods used is given by x,y respectively and construct the following:

The function to be minimized is:?

The restriction imposed by vitamin C need is: ? >= ?.

The restriction imposed by calcium need is: ? >= ?.

The restriction imposed by iron need is: ? >= ?.

**MathMate**, Saturday, February 26, 2011 at 10:59pmIs there a typo, both foods have the same nutrition content, so there is no minimization to be done.

Ch(x,y)=5x+5y

C(x,y)=15x+15y≥300

Ca(x,y)=x+y≥13

Fe(x,y)=2x+2y≥40
