    Linear Programming

    Hi Lola,

    Question.... explain the rentability #'s....and I assume the other restraint values are "A" "B"? (where is the profit?)

    Objective Function: Max Profit
    such that.....

    The info you gave is not clear to me to properly set up the optimization problem (with needed units left out)
