    Maple help?

    I'm having trouble with the following:

    An international organization must decide how to spend the $2,000 they
    have been allocated for famine relief in a remote area. They expect to
    use the money to buy rice at $5 per sack and beans at $10 per sack.
    The number P, of people who would be fed if they buy x sacks of rice
    and y sacks of beans is given by
    P = x + 2y + \frac {x^2y^2}{2*10^8}
    What is the maximum number of people who can be fed and how much
    of each food should the organization purchase?

    Thanks.
