    What I have so far: Beyond the Galaxy We create trippy clothes. Such as (product #1:) shirts (x) and (product #2:) skirts (y). 30x+20y<= $3x+$5y<=$340

    x is the number of items of product 1 so when you make the requirement that you must "Produce at least 30 of product #1", this means x >= 30 So you can produce x = 30, x = 31, x = 32, ... items of product 1 (but nothing less than 30)

    plug in x = 0 to get 3x+5y = 340 3*0+5y = 340 5y = 340 y = 340/5 y = 68 So one point on the line 3x+5y=340 is (0,68)

    If Product #1 earns a profit of $10 per unit and Product #2 earns a profit of $15 per unit, find the combination of Product #1 and Product #2 that will maximize profit. A commercial that could be used to advertise your two products to the general public. You may include a slogan or jingle.
