Can u help this linear programming question for shortest path.

It may not difficult as others.

Thank you

The Star Box Company sells boxes of seven types. They range in volume from as small as 17 to as large as 33 cubic feet. The demand and size of each box is given in Table 1. The variable cost (in dollars) of producing each box is equal to the box’s volume. A Fxed cost of \$1000 is incurred to produce any of a par±cular box. If the company desires, demand for a box may be sa±sFed by a box of larger size. ²ormulate a shortest path problem whose solu±on will minimize the cost of mee±ng the demand for boxes. Iden±fy nodes, arcs and costs.

Tthe shortest path in this network is: 1 → 3 → 5 → 8
