Linear Programming (Optimization Problems)Problem 1
The Stratton Company produces two basic types of product. Three resources are crucial to the output: extrusion hours, packaging hours, and a special additive to the product. The following data represent next week's situation.
The contribution to profits per unit is $34 for type I and $40 per type II. Formulate a linear programming model to determine how many of each type of product should be produced to maximize contribution to profits.
