P=20x+30y
subject to:
2x+3y>30
2x+y<26
6x+5y<50
x,y >0

Two ways:
Graphical...
plot the contraint areas 2x+3y=30
2x+y=26
6x+5y=50
x,y >0
Now we have a nice theorem that states the max, and min, will occur on the boundry where constraint lines meet. So test the profit function 20x+30y at each corner, and you will find the max.
Second method: Analytical

looks like linear programming.
let's look at each region.
2x + 3y > 30
the boundary is 2x + 3y = 30
when x = 0, y = 10
when y = 0 , x = 15 , so we have (0,10) and (15,0)
plot these points on the axes and draw a dotted line,
shade in the region above this line
2x+y < 26
repeat my method, shade in the region below the line 2x+y = 26
careful with the last one, I will do that one as well.
6x+y < 50 > y < 6x+50
draw the boundary line y = 6x+50
when x=0, y = 50 , when y = 0 x = 25/3
so your two points are (0,50) , (25/3,0)
shade in the region below that line
Your boundary lines should look like this

and here the actual intersection of the shaded regions.

notice that P = 20x + 30y has the same slope as 2x + 3y = 30
so the farthest point to the right of your region will be the solution.
Solve the corresponding equations to find that point, plug into
P = 20x + 30y
