2. P=285x+260y
x+2y<360 - eq. 1
X<430 -eq.2
Y<210 -eq.3

--GRAPHING THE INEQUALITIES--

Eq.1
X=0,y=180
Y=0,x=360
Eq.2 and Eq. 3, no need it is given

--Extreme Points--

(0,180)
(360,0)
(-60,150)
(430,-35)

Substitute these points to our Objective Function P

(0,180) = 46,800
(360,0)=102,600
(-60,150)=21,900
(430,-35)=113,450

So, the answer is (x=430, y=-35)
*please double check if there are errors
