## aroub 3 years ago A manufactor of ice skates can produce as many as 60 pairs of hockey skates as many as 45 pairs of figure skates per day. It takes 3 hr of labor to produce a pair of hockey skates and 4 hr of labor to produce a pair of figure skates. The company has up to 240 hr of labor available for ice skate production ecah day. If the profit is \$12 on each pair of hockey skates and \$18 on each pair of figure skates, find the number of pairs of each kind of skate the firm should produce to gain the maximum profit each day.

1. aroub

a) If x represents the number of pairs of hockey skates and y represent the number of pairs of figure skates that are produced daily, what is the daily profit on both kinds of skates?

2. hoblos

a) P= 12x + 18 y

3. aroub

What about this one: b) What condition, in terms of x and y, does the maximum of 240 hr of labor available for production each day impose?

4. aroub

3x+4y<=240 ?

5. hoblos

<= ?!! i think it is just = because you need the max well.. that depends on the meaning of impose... i dont really know the exact meanning of it !!

6. aroub

Yeah.. ibsar! Thank youu =DD
