**Damon**, Friday, December 27, 2013 at 6:39pmDo you know linear programming?

draw 3 axis graph (x,y,z) is (a, b , c)

Find all the corners of (a,b,c)

when a = 0

(0,0,5) (0,5/2,0)

and

(0 , 0 , -1/3) (0 1, 0)

when b = 0

(0,0,5) ( 5/3,0,0)

and

(1/2,0,0) (0,0,-1/3) note negative

when c = 0

(0,5/2,0) ( 5/3,0,0)

and

(0,1,0) (1/2,0,0)

You have three likely corners

p (5/3, 0, 0)

q (0, 5/2, 0)

r (0, 0, 5 )

try

p

S = 5

try q

S = 5/2

try r

S = negative

so the biggest I got was 5
