x <= 200

y <= 170

x+y >= 200

**Anonymous PLEASE HELP!**, Monday, March 4, 2013 at 12:18pmHow did you get 30 and 170? If the equation is -2x+5y?

**Steve**, Monday, March 4, 2013 at 2:20pmWell, just intuitively, if you lose money on each scientific calculator, you want to produce as few as possible. Ideally, zero.

Unfortunately, you have to produce at least 200 boxes a day, and can only produce 170 graphing calculators. So, you gotta do at least 30 of the losers.
