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?

okay the equation is wrong
