Linear Programming Help Please?
I need help trying to solve to problems, I want to know the answer to them first and then I want to know how to solve them.
I want to know if anyone can post a step by step how to solve at least one of these in great detail, or if there is a site that can explain these in great detail. I am very bad at math and last year I had the same questions on Algebra 2, and I completely forgot how to do them this year.
1) A tray of corn muffins requires 4c milk and 3c wheat flour. A tray of bran muffins takes 2c milk and 3c wheat flour. There are 16c milk and 15 wheat flour available, the baker makes $3 profit per tray of corn muffins and $2 profit per tray of bran muffins. How many trays of each should he make in order to maximize profits?
2) Each gallon of garlic dressing requires 2qt oil and 2qt vinegar. Each gallon of tofu dressing requires 3qt oil and 1qt vinegar. Jim makes $3 profit on each gallon of garlic dressing and $2 profit on each gallon of tofu dressing. He has 18qt oil and 10qt vinegar on hand. How many gallons of each type of dressing should he make to maximize profits?
I need step by step explanation on at least one, so I can remember how to solve these types of problems.
