    You only need to check the vertices of the polygon <(0, 0); (15, 0); (12, 6); (0, 12)>.

    It's not enough to check the vertices, you also need to check how the function behaves between the vertices and inside the area decided by the constraints. Check for maximas and insert them into the function to see which point gives the highest value of P.

    True, but this function is linear, thus it has no local extrema!
