Maximizing profit, anybody wanna help?? I haven't taken statistics in many years so I am a bit rusty. I am trying to maximize profit. Is there a specific formula to follow in order to do this. There are three separtate items. What i need to know is how many of each item should I produce in order to max my profit. I have a budgeted amt of in factory labor hrs, on site labor hrs and total cash for building materials. Also, each item yields a separate amt. of profit, requires a separate amt. of factory labor hrs., and a separate amt. of on site labor hrs. Thanks in advance if anyone who is kind enought to provide me with a formula or suggestions.
