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.
