Each acre of oats requires \$18 capital and 6hrs. of labor. Labor is \$8/hr. The farmer has \$2100 for capital and \$2400 for labor. If the revenue is \$55 from each acre of oats and \$125 from each acre of corn, what planting combinaton will produce the greatest total profit? List combination and the profit. ----- Acre: oats + corn <= 100 Revenue = 55o+125c capital = (18+6*8)o + ?c <= 2100 labor = (6*18)o + ?c <= 2400 --------------------- Note: You have not listed capital and labor costs for corn. ---- Note: Profit = Revenue - Cost Find the max for the profit equation. ============================================ Cheers, Stan H.
