11/13 Question 19 Your answer is INCORRECT. A certain academic department at a local university will conduct a research project. The department will need to hire graduate research assistants and professional researchers. Each graduate research assistant will need to work 26 hours per week on fieldwork and 14 hours per week at the university's research center. Each professional researcher will need to work 11 hours per week on fieldwork and 29 hours per week at the university's research center. The minimum number of hours needed per week for fieldwork is 154 and the minimum number of hours needed per week at the research center is 131. Each research assistant will be paid \$257 per week and each professional researcher will be paid \$402 per week. Let x denote the number of graduate research assistants hired and let y denote the number of professional researcher hired. The department wants to minimize cost.
