To satisfy a shipping contract, a total of at lease 200 calculators must be shipped each day.

If each scientific calculator sold results in a $2 loss,but each graphing calculator produces a $5 profit, how many if each type should be made daily to maximize net profits?

A) Define the objective equation.
B)Define the constraint equations.
C)Graph the associated constraint equations.
D) Determine the vertices of each of the graphed equations.
E) Determine how many of each type of calculators should be made daily to maximize the net profits and the amount of net profit.
