    you and a friend are Start a computer building business.


    *You have a $10,000 loan.
    * Max 90 hours to devote.
    *Demand of product is 3 laptops for every 1 desktop.

    To build a desktop:
    -Cost of parts:$700
    -Time: 5 hours
    -Profit: $500

    To build laptop:
    -Cost of parts: $400
    -Time: 3 hours
    -Profit: $300

    How many of each should you make to maximize profit?

    He said the constraints where

     700x+400y\leq 10,000.
     5x+3y\leq 90.
     y\geq 3x
     x\geq 0
     y\geq 0

    Thank you for the input.

    He also wants us to do the same thing but changed things up a little bit.

    *compute for EQUAL demand, and a loan of $12,400
