He wants to make sure that each dog consumes at least 8 ounces of protein, at least 1 ounce of carbohydrate and no more than 0.5 ounces of fat each day. [Note: There are 16 ounces in a pound.] Grain Product Cost ($/pound) Protein (%) Carbohydrate (%) Fat (%) A 0.45 0.62 0.05 0.03 B 0.40 0.55 0.10 0.02 C 0.27 0.36 0.20 0.01 a) How much of each grain product should each dog be fed in order to minimize Doug’s cost? b) Request a sensitivity report for this analysis. c) What if each grain must make up at least 10% of the protein part of the dog’s diet?
