the ace novelty company wishes to produce two types of souvenirs: type A and type B. to manufacture a type A souvenir requires 2 minutes on machine 1 and 1 minute on machine 2. a type B souvenir requires 1 minute on machine 1 and 3 minutes on machine 2. There are 180 minutes available on machine 1 and 300 minutes available on machine 2 for processing the order. let x represent the number f type A souvenirs produced and let y represent the number of type B souvenirs produced
a. Write linear equalities that give appropriate restrictions on x and y
b. If each type A souvenir will result in a prof

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0b. if each type a souvenir will result in a profit of $1 and each type b souvenir will result a profit of 1.20 then express the profit, p in terms of x and y. c. algebraically determine how many souvenirs of each type the ace novelty company should produce so as to maximize profit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a) Write linear equalities that give appropriate restrictions on x and y. What ype of restrictions? cant seem to understand the question yet

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think we have time restrictions 2x+y<=180 and x+3y<=300

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for each x type you spend 2 minutes on machine one. for each y type you spend 1 minute on machine one. the total time on machine 1 is 2x+y and it must be less than or equal to the total time of machine 1 which is 180. thats where the equations come from

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you know how to find maximums of functions?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you plug in the boundary for y in the p=x+1.2y term and you find its maximum on both boundaries. The highest of the two maxes is your max profit.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah there are. one of them is 0,0 which you can rule out right away. then check the other 3 points and choose the largest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0try drawing it by hand on paper. The first has y intercept 180 and slope 2 the second has y intercept 100 slope 1/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=1802x has y intercept 180 x intercept 90. y=100x/3 has y intercept 100 x intercept 300

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then y has to be less than both of those lines. So the cornerpoints are (0,0), (0,100), (90,0), (240/7,620/7). plug them into the profit equation and see which is the highest.
