The Robinsons are planning a wedding and reception for their daughter, Rachel.

Some of the most expensive items served at the reception and dinner are wine and

beer. The Robinsons are planning on 200 guests at the reception, and they estimate

that they need at least four servings (i.e., a glass of wine or bottle of beer) for each

guest in order to be sure they won't run out. A bottle of wine contains five glasses.

They also estimate that 50Vo more guests will prefer wine to beer. A bottle of wine

costs \$8, and a bottle of beer costs \$0.75. The Robinsons have budgeted \$ 1,200

for wine and beer. Finally, the Robinsons want to minimize their waste (i.e.,

unused wine and beer). The caterer has advised them that typically 5% of the wine

and l0% of the beer will be left over. How many bottles of wine and beer should

the Robinsons order?

a. Formulate a linear programming model for this problem.
