(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Firstly i'm sorry to bother all of you that will find this question really basic but I haven't studied Maths since GCSE 7 years ago and I am now doing a degree in Engineering without A Level Maths so any help would be great...I need to work out the algebra and the main issue is how to plot it on a graph!? I'm guessing I need to use y=mx + c but i'm not sure how to do that on excel.

A builder has a plot of land available on which he can build either luxury of standard houses.

He decides to build at least 5 luxury and 10 standard houses. Planning restrictions limit him

to no more than 30 houses altogether. A luxury house requires 300m2

of land and a standard

house 150m2

. The plot is 6000m2

. Profit is $12; 000 per luxury house and $8000 per standard

house. How many of each type should he build to maximise his profit.

Thank you anyone that can help!

Adam
