Your computersupply store sells two types of inkjet printers. The first, type A, costs $237 and you make a $22 profit on each one. The second, type B, costs $122 and you make a $19 profit on each one. You can order no more than 120 printers this month, and you need to make at least $2,400 profit on them. If you must order at least one of each type of printer, how many of each type of printer should you order if you want to minimize your cost?
69 of type A : 51 of type B
40 of type A : 80 of type B
51 of type A : 69 of type B
80 of type A : 40 of type B

If we let: a = number of type A computers b = number of type B computers Then we can produce the following equations: Amount of Computers a + b ≤ 120 Cost of Computers: C(a,b) = 237a + 122b Profit from computers: 22a + 19b ≥ 2400 So now we take the amount equation and the profit equation and solve for a and b: a + b ≤ 120 22a + 19b ≥ 2400 Multiply the first equation by 22 to get: 22a + 22b ≤ 2640 22a + 19b ≥ 2400 Isolate 22a in both equations: 22a ≤ 2640  22b 22a ≥ 2400  19b Now set: 22a ≤ 22a 2400  19b ≤ 2640  22b Place like terms on the same side: 22b  19b ≤ 2640  2400 3b ≤ 240 b ≤ 240/3 b ≤ 80 Thus a ≤ 40 since we know that a + b ≤ 120

Furthermore, since a = 40 and b = 80, we can find the total cost: C(a,b) = 237a + 122b C(40,80) = 237(40) + 122(80) = 19,240

After further review, it appears that someone else must have posted the same question.
