NAME______________________________
Jeannette has 180 acres of farmland for growing wheat or soybeans. Each acre of wheat requires 2 hours of labor at harvest time, and each acre of soybeans requires 1 hour of labor. She will have 240 hours of labor available at harvest time. Find the maximum profit Jeannette can make from her two crops if she can get a profit of $40 per acre for wheat and $50 per acre for soybeans.
Let x = number of acres of wheat
y = number of acres of soybeans
a. List the constraints
b. Determine the objective function. __________________
c. Graph the set of constraints. Place acres of wheat on the horizontal axis and acres of soybeans on the vertical axis.
