The number of units of protein:

$\displaystyle x+y \le 7$

The number of units of carbohydrate:

$\displaystyle 2x+y \ge 10$

The above together with $\displaystyle x \ge 0$ and $\displaystyle y \ge 0$ are

the constraints, and the objective to minimise is the cost:

$\displaystyle cost=0.12x+0.08y$.

I hope that helps.
