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

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=1201/5x
Now test the corners for profit. Remember Profit is incomecosts. 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
"Your club can afford up to $1200 to buy baskets."
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= (1610)x + (2515)y because you have to buy the baskets.
