Let $\displaystyle x$ denote the number of ounces of A and $\displaystyle y$ theOriginally Posted by CONFUSED_ONE
number of ounces of Y.
Then the number of units of fat are:
$\displaystyle x+y \ge 6$.
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.
