Unformatted text preview: Linear Programming example: problem setup A truck traveling from New York to Baltimore is to be loaded with two types of cargo. Each crate of cargo A is 5 cubic feet in volume, weighs 100 pounds, and earns $12 for the driver. Each crate of cargo B is 3 cubic feet in volume, weighs 25 pounds, and earns $7 for the driver. The truck can carry no more than 300 cubic feet of crates and no more than 1,000 pounds (halfton pickup truck). Also, the number of crates of cargo B must be less than or equal to twice the number of crates of cargo A.
