The Question ...
A clothing manufacturer has 100m of silk and 180m of wool. To make a suit requires 2m of silk and 3m of wool, and to make a dress requires 1m of silk and 2m of wool. If the profit on a suit is $108 and the profit on a dress is $60, how many suits and dresses should the manufacturer make to maximize the profit?
What I have so far...
Let x represent silk
Let y represent wool
Equation for suit: 2x + 3y = 108 ??
Equation for dress: 1x + 2y = 60 ??
Im not sure if these are right or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
I am really just looking for the overall equation but any other tips would also make things easier! this is due tomorrow ahhh
Thanks in advance!
