Use the following demand data (1,000s) for the next two questions:
1 2 3 4
Product A 500 550 600 650
Product B 200 225 275 300
Currently there are three identical processing machines for producing these products. Each machine can produce 300,000 of product A or 200,000 of product B per year, or some combination of both.
