In a factory, Machine A Produces 60 Cornflakes boxes per hour and Luckycharms at 70 boxes per hour. Machine B produces produces 40 cornflake boxes per hour and Luckycharms 40 per hour. It costs $50 a hour to run machine A and $30 a hour to run Machine B. Machine A cannot run more then 9 hours a day and Machine B cannot run more then 10 hours a day. Atleast 240 cornflakes boxes need to be made and 140 lucky charm boxes need to be made.

So, I setup my variables:

Cornflakes = C

Luckycharms = L

And here are my equations (there cannot be more than 4 constraints):

60C + 70L <= 9 (machine A)

40C + 20L <= 10 (machine b)

C >= 240

L >= 140

My equation is wrong though. If I solve and graph it (L = Y, C = X), it does not come out correctly.

Can someone help?
