[14] 1. A manufacturing company which produces a single type of item wishes to enlarge its capacity over the next six production periods (a period is three months). The com- pany’s objective is to have its production capacity as large as possible by the beginning of the seventh period. Each item produced in a period requires $ 100 (for the purchase of raw materials and the payment of wages of employees) at the beginning of that period, and one unit of plant capacity; it yields $ 140 of sales revenue at the beginning of the next period .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
