Sally's Solar Car Co. has a plant that can manufacture family sedans, station wagons, and sports
coupes. The contribution, variable production time, and fixed cost for these cars are given below. PROFIT VARIABLE
Sedan 6,000 12 2,000,000
Station Wagon 8,000 15 3,000,000
Coupe 11,000 24 7,000,000 Sally currently has orders for 100 sedans, 200 station wagons, and 300 coupes. She must satisfy these
orders. She wants to plan production so she will break even as quickly as possible—that is, she wants
to make sure that the total contribution margin will equal total fixed costs and that total variable pro— duction time is minimized. Formulate this problem as an LP and solve it.
