Please see that attached word document, for the problem.
Problem 5 The World Health Council is devoted to improving health care in the underdeveloped countries of the world. It now has five medical teams available to allocate among three such countries to improve their medical care, health education, and training programs. Therefore, the council needs to determine how many teams (if any) to allocate to each of these countries to maximize the total effectiveness of the five teams. The teams must be kept intact, so the number allocated to each country must be an integer. The measure of performance being used is additional person- years of life. For a particular country, this measure equals the increased life expectancy in years times the country's population. The table below gives the estimated additional person-years of life (in multiples of 1000) for each country for each possible allocation of medical teams. Which allocation maximizes the measure of performance? 1000s of Additional Person-Years of Life Country Medical Teams A B C 0 0 0 0 1 45 20 50 2 70 45 70 3 90 75 80 4 105 110 100 5 120 150 130
