## Homework Statement

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I sort of want to make this into a linear program problem, but I think that it should be solvable without it, since I never learned about it in this particular course.

I will just work with Fuel Process 1 as an example, and I can do the other processes if I get this one correct to figure out the most profitable process.

The profit, ##P##, can be determined,

$$P = (0.6)(45)G + (0.2)(30)H + (0.1)(15)J + (0.0)(60)L - (0.1)(15)O - (15)C - (5)C $$

The demand constraints,

$$ \begin{bmatrix} G \\ H \\ J \\ L \end{bmatrix} \le \begin{bmatrix} 170 \\ 85 \\ 85 \\20 \end{bmatrix} $$

##C = 100##

##G + H + J + L + O = C##

Am I going in the right direction for this one? Feels like I may be double counting the operating losses with the cost of the crude oil twice.
