# 1. A farmer has 100 acres of land on which she plans to grow wheat and corn. Each acre of wheat requires 4 hours of labor and \$20 of capital, and each acre of corn requires 16 hours of labor and \$40 of capital. The farmer has at most 800 hours of labor and \$2400 of capital available. If the profit from an acre of wheat is \$80 and from an acre of corn is \$100, how many acres of each crop should she plant to maximize her profit?

1. c = acres of corn
w = acres of wheat

constraints:

c+w </= 100

wheat cost = 20 w
corn cost = 40 c
20 w + 40 c </= 2400

wheat labor = 4 w
corn labor = 16 c
4 w + 16 c </= 800

Now the criterion
p = 80 w + 100 c

check p at every intersection of the above constraint lines, pick the biggest p

2. Let X be the area for wheat (in acres), and
Let Y be the area for corn.

The amount of labor is 5X + 15Y hours.
The amount of capital is 20X + 30Y dollars
