    Let x be the number short-answer questions and y be the number of essay quesitons.

    Given : 9 points for short - answer

    25 points for essay.

    x <=10, obviously x >=9

    y<=10, obviously y >=3

    x + y <=19 ( constraints)

    Maximum score

    Maximum Z= 9x + 25 y

    Subject to the constraints,

    x+y<=19,

    x>=9, y >= 3

    That's it,

    Thanks for using Brainmass service :-)

    How do you set it up from here using the numbers in the equation to solve? How do I use those equations to come up with the answer?
