hi,

im having a bit of trouble understanding how to formulate rhis problem, can someone please help me?
the problem is:

there are two types of product A and B.

In a monthly prod. the shop makes 16 of A when it makes a profit of £1000 per model, and this drops to 12 when the profit is increased £1200.
Also they sell 20 of B, when their profit is £1400 per model, and when they increase the profit to £2100 they sell only 10.

how do i formulate this problem?

The first question you have to ask - what are you trying to determine? Your statement gives information, but no question.

It looks to me that you don't have enough information to formulate the problem. Decreasing production while increasing revenue can only take you so far.
