Hi all,

I have two eqns which are related to stock and dividends( .. i hope).

5.5x + 2.5y = theta

67.00x + 28y = 200 000

I derived the above two eqns from this:

Stock A is @ 67.00

Stock B is @ 28.00

Stock A pays 5.5 dollars per unit of stock annually

Stock B pays 2.5 dollars per unit of stock annually.

(ie. if i buy 1 x 67.00 and 0 x 28.00, that year i'll get $5.50)

My question is how to derive the set of {x,y} that would yield max theta possible?

I tried substitution algrebta. However, i don't know how to prove the theta obtained by that set of {x,y} is the max theta possible.

May i know what i could do to prove and find the max theta?

Million thanks,

Gary
