# appropriate optimization model

A soda producer makes and sells two products, Classic Cola and Diet Cola. If this company spends X1 dollars on promotion of Classic Cola in a particular western city, it can sell 75 X1^0.5 12-packs of Classic Cola each week there. Moreover, if this company spends X2 dollars on promotion of Diet Cola in a particular western city, it can sell 50X2^0.5 12-packs of Diet Cola each week there. Each 12-pack of Classic Cola sells for \$3.00 and costs \$0.80 to produce and ship to customers in this western city. Each 12-pack of Diet Cola sells for \$3.50 and costs \$1.00 to produce and ship to customers in this western city. A total of \$10,000 is available for promotion each week in this city.
