i believe this type of question falls under linear programming but im not sure.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

anyways, can someone help me out with this question:

An office manager needs to buy new filing cabinets. Cabinet A costs $15, takes up 6 ft^2 of space and holds 8 ft^3 of files. Cabinet B costs $10, takes up 9 ft^2 of space and holds 14 ft^3 of files. He has $60 to spend and the office has room for no more than 63 ft^2 of cabinets. How many of each can he buy to maximize the storage capacity? What is the maximum storage capacity?

can someone help me set up the problem? do i set up variables for price, space, and files?
