Not what you're looking for?

A brand manager of Company A must determine how much time to allocate to radio and TV advertising for next month. Market Research have given estimates of the audience exposure for each minute of advertising in each medium, which it would like to maximize. Costs of minutes of advertising are known, and the manager has a budget of $25,000. Because TV ads have been found to be much more effective then radio ads, the manager decided that at least 70% of the time should be allocated TV. We have the following data.

Type of Ad...........Exposure/Minute.........Cost/Minute

Radio............................150..........................$400

TV.................................800.........................$2000
