Hey everyone. I cant figure out how to set this word problem up for the simplex Big M method. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
A company produces two types of mixes, Mix R and Mix D
Mix R has at least 20% nuts
Mix R has at most 40% Bolts
Mix D has at least 30% nuts
Mix D has at most 40% bolts.
The company has available to it:
1200 pounds of screws
750 pounds of nuts
1500 pounds of bolts
Knowing that the company makes $0.60 dollars per pound of mix D and $0.40 dollars per pound of mix R how many pounds of nuts, bolts and scews should be used to maximise the companies profit.
