I need help finding constraints to put this on the graph. the objective function is c=16x+25y.

Problem: Your club plans to raisse money by selling two sizes of fruit baskets. The plan is to buy small baskets for \$10 and sell them for \$16, and to buy large baskets for \$15 and sell them for \$25. The club president estimates that you will not sell more than 100 baskets. Your club can afford up to \$1200 to buy baskets. Find the number of small and large baskets you should buy in order to maximize profit.

This is a Linear Programming Problem

• acc math 2 high school -

Plot small baskets on vertical axis, large on the horizontal axis.

Constraints: x, nor y can be less than zero. x+y=100.
and finally, 10y + 15x<=1200

So, plot the lines y=-x + 100, then y=120-1/5x

Now test the corners for profit. Remember Profit is income-costs. At one of the corners, you will get max profit.

let x = number of small baskets
let y = number of large baskets

There are two constraints given:

"The club president estimates that you will not sell more than 100 baskets."
The total number of baskets <= 100: so x + y <= 100

10x + 15y <= 1200, because the cost of buying one small basket is \$10, and the cost of buying one large basket is \$25

Note that profit is p= (16-10)x + (25-15)y because you have to buy the baskets.
