maximum revenue

Island Publishing Company publishes two types of magazines on a monthly basis: a restaurant and entertainment guide and a real estate guide.
The company distributes the magazines free to businesses, hotels, and stores on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina.
The company's profits come exclusively from the paid advertising in the magazines.
Each of the restaurant and entertainment guides distributed generates $0,50 per magazine in advertising revenue, whereas the real estate guide generates $0,75 per magazine.
The real estate magazine is a more sophisticated publication that includes color photos, and accordingly it costs $0,25 per magazine to print, compared with only $0,17 for the restaurant and entertainment guide.
The publishing company has a printing budget of $4000 per month.
There is enough rack space to distribute at most 18000 magazines each month.
