Question details

A contractor builds boathouses in two basic models: the Atlantic and the Pacific. Each model requires a certain amount of framing lumber, concrete, and money for advertising: Atlantic Pacific Framing Lumber (feet) 1000 2000 Concrete (ft3) 3000 3000 Advertising Money $2000 3000 Contracts call for using at least 11,000 feet of framing lumber, 18,000 ft of concrete, and $15,000 worth of advertising. If the construction cost for each Atlantic model is $30,000 and for each Pacific model is $40,000, how many of each model should be built to minimize construction costs? Solve using either the graphical method or the simplex method. Show all your work: set up all inequalities, show your feasible region and your complete analysis.
