Chapter 2 Project: Hot! Hot! Hot!
Red Hot Sauce (X-variable) Scorchin' Hot Sauce (Y-variable)
Green Peppers Hot Chili Peppers
Y<= -5/4x+262.5 Y<=-1/2x+150
The solution I chose is (50,60) , which means that you will have 660 green peppers left over and 520 hot chili peppers left over.
Where the two lines intersect is (150,75)
1.20(150) + 1.00(75) = $255.00 Which means the Maximum Profit is $255.00.
