For each problem, you must:
1. Define the variables
2. Write the function to be maximized or minimized.
3. Write a system of inequalities.
4. Graph and write the vertices of the feasible region.
5. Solve the problem and answer the question.
The Conway High Band is selling caramel and crunch bars to raise money for their trip to Florida in 2012. The caramel bars are packaged 20 bars per case. They pay $30 per case of caramel and make a profit of $17 per case. The crunch bars are packaged 24 bars per case and CHS pay $26 per case and makes a profit of $15 per case. They order no more than 3,000 caramel and crunch bars together and spend nor more than $4,000. How many cases of caramel and crunch bars would Mr. Cunningham need to buy to maximize their profits?

Sorry it's been a long time :)
Having trouble getting an equation for the case of bars, with the profit mixed in.
I'm sure someone will come along to help ya soon. c:

- Firejay5

can you do linear programming @sauravshakya

- Firejay5

number your steps for me

- Firejay5

where did you get thoses answers

- anonymous

1)(30/20)*x + (26/20)*y<=4000
2)x+y<=3000
Need to find Maximum value of (17/20)*x+(15/24)y

- anonymous

x is the number of caramel bars and y is the number of crunch bars bought.

- anonymous

Now, u need to graph it.

- Firejay5

okay wait

- Firejay5

I can graph it, what's the vertices

- anonymous

can u tell me from the graph

- Firejay5

what equations would I type into my calculator

- Firejay5

uh

- anonymous

1 and 2

- Firejay5

what's #1 and 2

- anonymous

1)(30/20)*x + (26/20)*y=4000
2)x+y=3000

- Firejay5

#2 is also 3,000 < = x < = 4,000

- Firejay5

right

- Firejay5

#1 isn't right I don't think

- Firejay5

@sauravshakya I can't enter #1 in my calculator

- anonymous

Oh sorry its:
1)(30/20)*x + (26/24)*y=4000

- Firejay5

okay the equation is wrong

- Firejay5

I think it's x + y < = 3,000 and 3,000 < = x < = 4000

- anonymous

I think it is (30/20)*x + (26/24)*y<=4000

- Firejay5

I can't enter it into my calculator though

- Firejay5

it's too much for the calculator

- Firejay5

I can enter 30/20x, but that's about it

- anonymous

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=%2830%2F20%29*x+%2B+%2826%2F24%29*y%3C%3D4000+AND+x%2By%3C%3D3000

- Firejay5

I can't enter it in, because of the y

- Firejay5

haha you're wrong I needed to enter 3000 < = x < = 4000 and x + y < = 3,000

- anonymous

Why 3000<=x<=4000

- Firejay5

because the 2nd equation is confusing and can't enter it in

- Firejay5

@SWAGGKINGFOREVER what's your real name

- Firejay5

uh

- Firejay5

come up with better equations @sauravshakya

- anonymous

My first name is king and my last name james like no lie

- Firejay5

king james like for realz

- anonymous

Yeah

- Firejay5

that's tight man

- anonymous
