3. (Use the graphical method for the following problem): A technology company manufac- tures televisions and soundbars. The following table gives the labor requirements and profits per automobile: TelevisionsSoundbars Assemble10 labor-hours8 labor-hours Load and Transport2 labor-hours1 labor-hours Profit$150$100 Each day, 360 labor-hours are available to assemble these products and 60 labor-hours are avail- able to load and trasport them. The manufacturer wants to determine how many televisions and soundbars to produce of each type in order to maximize profit under these constraints. (a)[5 points]Define variables for modeling this scenario, and write down the objective function.

Assembly: 10x+ 8y360, Load and Transport: 2x+y60, We also have our physical constraints (no negative items can be produced): x0, y0. The complete system of constraints is given by 10x+ 8y360 2x+y60 x0, y0 (c) List the corner points of the feasible region.

Thus the corner points are (0,0),(0,45),(20,20),(30,0). (d)[5 points]How many televisions and soundbars should be produced each day to maximize the total profit?
