  2. P=285x+260y
    x+2y<360 - eq. 1
    X<430 -eq.2
    Y<210 -eq.3

    --GRAPHING THE INEQUALITIES--

    Eq.1
    X=0,y=180
    Y=0,x=360
    Eq.2 and Eq. 3, no need it is given

    --Extreme Points--

    (0,180)
    (360,0)
    (-60,150)
    (430,-35)

    Substitute these points to our Objective Function P

    (0,180) = 46,800
    (360,0)=102,600
    (-60,150)=21,900
    (430,-35)=113,450

    So, the answer is (x=430, y=-35)
    *please double check if there are errors
