Here is the Optimization Problem:

Every year, the Boy Scouts association sells calendars to raise money. Two types of calendars are sold:

-Wall Calendars at 4:00$ each

-Desk Calendars at 2.00$ each.

The profit on the sale of a wall calendar is 2$. On the desk calendar, the profit is only 0.50$ each.

To cover their expenses, the scouts must sell at least twice as many wall calendars as desk calendars. F

From previous years, they know they will sell between 300 and 600 calendars.

How many calendars of each type must the scouts sell to maximize their profit?

Let: X: Number of wall calendars

Y: Number of desk calendars.

What are the constraints?

How many Wall calendars and Desk calendars must the scouts sell?

**Thank you so much for all help. Sorry my first post involves me asking a question. I will probably stick around this forum ;)**
