Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im guessing thats an L not a 1 where l=.5x.3y anyway the best thing to do is to graph our constraints by this i mean take each one and solve for y so it is y=mx+b form then plot the line on a graph starting at yintercept then using slope(rise/run) to get second point. Next shade in the area bounded by the 3 lines based on the > or < of the constraints. You should get something like a triangle with vertices where the lines intercept. Next evaluate each of the three endpoints of the triangle. they should be (3,1), (0,4), (6,8) plug in the x and yvalues of each ordered pair into the L=.5x.3y function whichever point yields the smallest value is your minimum. Hope this helps
