The Navy has 9,000 pounds of material in Albany, Georgia which it wishes to ship to three installations: San Diego, Norfolk and Pensacola. They require 4,000 2,500 and 2,500 pounds respectively. The following gives the shipping cost per pound for truck, railroad, amd airplane transit.

Destination

Mode San Diego Norfolk Pensacola

Truck $12 $6 $5

Railroad 20 11 9

Airplane 30 26 28
