headphone product line consists of two products, Reverbia and Bscape. MeanBeats sells

i) the Bscape orders plus twice the Reverbia orders cannot exceed 20 packs.
ii) the Reverbia orders are no more than 10 more than the Bscape orders, and
iii) the Bscape orders are no more than 3 more than the Reverbia orders.
