    linear programming Max 5A+5B

    New to the forum, just wanted to see if someone can check my answer to the following...solve the following using graphical solution procedure:
    Max. 5A+5B
    s.t.
    1A<=100
    1B<=80
    2A+4B<=400
    A,B>=0

    after using the graphical solution procedure to find the optimal solution for the equations....I arrived at point C with coordinates of 200,0 which, when plugged into the maximizing equation gives 1000.
    Am I even close?

    A=200, B=0, is not feasible (that is it does not satisfy the constraints)

    The vertices of the feasible region are (0,0), (100,0), (0,80) (40,80) and (100,50). The optimum occurs at one of these.
