contraints
2 g + 3 w < 1200
2 g + w < 800
objective
p = 3 g + 2 w
corners (g,w)
(0,0)
if g = 0
w = 400 or 800, use 400 (0,400)
(0,400)
if w = 0
g = 600 or 400, use 400 (400,0)
intersection
2 g + 3 w = 1200
2 g + w = 800

2 w = 400
w = 200
g = 300 so (300,200)

look at p
at (0,0) is 0
at (0,400) is 800
at (400,0) is 1200
at (300,200) is 3*300+2*200 = 1300
max profit of 1300 at (300,200)
