    Linear Programming Help NZ Year 13 Homework, Please Help!

    A retailer for a music shop buys CD's and DVDs packed in cartons. The cost of a carton of CD's is $75 and the cost of a carton of DVDs is $200. He can only afford to spend up to $30 000 on buying these CD's and DVDs and has room for only 200 cartons
    Use the following constraints and draw the graphs to find the feasible region.
    75c + 200d < 30,000
    c + d < 200
    c ≥ 0
    d ≥ 0
    Need help on graphing this please?? Thanks!

    These contraints look good.

    Now set up a 2-D plane with variables c & d instead of the traditional x & y then find the axis intercepts for the first 2 and limit the plane to the first quadrant will satisfy the 3rd and 4th constraints.
