    How many combinations will yield a minimum profit? ---> Optimizations

    I have a strong feeling it has to do with something between the line AD, but my problem is that I do not know how to determine how many coordinates of that line are a combination that will yield a minimum profit.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks in advance!

    A good start might be to read the values they've given you in the table, which shows the four combinations (being the coordinates of each of the four corners) and the resulting values.

    The other two coordinates are irrelevant since they are not minimums. I know there are other points that reside in that line that are minimums. I just don't know how to find them.
