Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
well the graph you posted pretty much sums up what i would tell you ....
also you want to maximize total equipment or (x+y) so just add up each combination and see which one gives highest total and is still under $615
im not getting it?
The graph you have shows that all 4 of your possible answers are valid. They are not in that yellow area of the graph, which means they are all possible combinations. Now visually, the best answers are going to be answers that are on the highest boundary lines. 2 of your answers are on lower boundary lines and 2 are on the higher boundary lines. This means that right away we want to throw those two answers out, theyre not maximizing anything. So we're left with B or D. Now as said before, the graph shows that neither B or D go into that yellow danger zone. Both are possible combinations. This means that D is the best choice because it gives you the most equipment. And just to confirm that this is a valid choice, we can check our math.
29 baseballs * 20 dollars = 580
1 bat * 35 dollars = 35
580 + 35 = 615.
So this confirms D as our best choice.
