As the constraints are of strict inequality type there is no point in

the faesible region at which R(x,y) takes a maximal value.

If the constraints were:

x>=0, y>=0, and 8x+3y<=2400,

then the maximum would occur on the boundary of the feasible region, and

one could find it by examining R(x,y) on the boundary.
