A company makes and sells two types of 5-ounce mixed nuts packages.
A low-grade mixture containing 3 ounces of cashews and 2 ounces of peanuts
and a high-grade mixture containing 4 ounces of cashews and 1 ounce of peanuts.
The profit is $0.70 on each package of the low-grade mixture
and $0.80 on each package of the high-grade mixture.
The mixing machine that gets filled every hour can hold at most 36 ounces of cashews
and no more than 14 ounces of peanuts.
By graphing, find:
a) the maximum hourly profit
b) the production schedule that maximizes the hourly profit.
Why do they always ask these questions backwards ??
