Me and 5 other people in my study group are having troubles doing this, this is high school math and need help
Josh has 8 days to make pots and plates to sell at local fair. Each pot weighs 2 pounds and each plate weighs 1 pound. Josh cannot carry more than 50 pounds to the fair. Each day, he can make at most 5 plates and at most 3 pots. He will make $12 profit for every plate and $25 profit for every pot that he sells. How many pots and how many plates should Josh make to maximize his potential profit?
A clothing company makes jackets and pants. Each jacket requires 1 hour of cutting and 4 hours of sewing. Each pair of pants requires 2 hours of cutting and 3 hours of sewing. The total time per day available for cutting is 20 hours and for sewing 32 hours. If the clothing company makes $10 profit on each jacket and $7 profit on each pair of pants, how many of each should be made to maximize their profit?
