# Linear Programming: Profit Maximization

You are a woodworker who makes tables and chairs.

Each table requires $80 in materials, 4 hrs of labor and earns $70 profit. Each chair requires $80 in materials, 8 hrs of labor, and earns $120 profit. This week you have $960 cash for materials, and 64hrs of labor available. What should you plan to build to maximize your profit?

Suppose we need to build tables and chairs.

From the condition, each table earns $70 profit and each chair earns $120 profit. So we get the object function:

From the condition, each table requires $80 in material and each chair requires $80 in material and you have $960 in material. So we ...

#### Solution Summary

The maximm profit is calculated using linear programming.
