(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. A company makes 2 products. Desk and Bookcase. The company has 2 factories and each product requires development time in both factories. Factory A only has 55 hours a week, and factory B only has 39 hours. To make a desk it takes 4 hours in factory A and 3 hours in factory B. To make a bookcase it takes 3 hours in factory A and 2 hours in factory B. Profits for the desk are 70 dollars, and 50 dollars for the bookcase.

That is all the information available...There are multiple questions, but one of the questions I encountered that I for whatever reason cannot coherently attempt is "Write down the profit function for the sale of X desks and Y bookcases."

2. It also asked to make 2 ineqaulities for the hours in each factory..which I think I did correctly?

4a+3b<=55

3a+2b<=39

3. P=x(70)+y(50)
