    Maximize this Function

    Hi, I'm working on a maximization problem, and I have this equation:

    .5*(x/(x+y) + (10-x)/(20-x-y))

    I need to maximize it. The only constraints are that both x and y are integers greater than or equal to 0, and less than or equal to 10. Thanks!

    Hi

    Basically you have 11 x 11 = 121 possibilities (x from 0 to 10 and y from 0 to 10)
    An Excel file can provide you the answer
