    2 g + 3 w < 1200
    2 g + w < 800
    p = 3 g + 2 w

    corners (g,w)
    if g = 0
    w = 400 or 800, use 400 (0,400)
    if w = 0
    g = 600 or 400, use 400 (400,0)
    2 g + 3 w = 1200
    2 g + w = 800
    2 w = 400
    w = 200
    g = 300 so (300,200)
    look at p
    at (0,0) is 0
    at (0,400) is 800
    at (400,0) is 1200
    at (300,200) is 3*300+2*200 = 1300
    max profit of 1300 at (300,200)
