# Preemptive goal programming model

Highland Appliance must determine how many color TV's and VCR's should be stocked. It cost highland $300 to purchase a color TV and $200 to purchase a VCR. A color TV requires 3 square yards of storage space. A VCR requires 1 square yard of storage space. The sale of a color TV earns Highland a profit of $150, and the sale of a VCR earns $100.
