Constraints: -5/4x+262.5<=y, -1/2x+150<= y, x<=0, y<=0
P=1.2x+1y (Red Hot Sauce=X, Scorchin' Hot Sauce=Y)
To maximize profits I would have to sell 150 pints of Red Hot Sauce and 75 pints of Scorchin' Hot Sauce.
Green Peppers: $.25 each
Chilis: $.50 per pepper
Tomato Sauce: $1.25 a can
It would cost $4.50 a pint of Red Hot Sauce and $6.25 a pint of Scorchin' Hot Sauce.
The final selling price would be, $5.70 for a pint of Red Hot Sauce and 7.25 for a pint of Scorchin' Hot Sauce.
Seventy-five pints should be sold each week.
