How many radios of each type can be constructed if the total number of transistors (P's, Q's and R's) available are 2200, 3400 and 1400 respectively and all transistors must be used?

- MATH- please help! -

It would be much easier to respond to the original post, or make a new post with reference to the old post by number or by date and time.

Let

D=number of deluxe units

S=number of standard units

E=number of economy units

Set up equations for each type of transistor, forcing the total number used to the quantity available:

For type P:

2D+2S+E=2200

For type Q:

7D+3S+2E=3400

For type R:

D+S+2E=1400

Solving the above three simultaneous equations will give the quantities required. I get a total of 1200 units.
