Super Toys Company makes to radio-controlled cars, Fast and SuperFast. They can sell all they make. Both models have the same components. Two of these can be obtained only from a single supplier. For next month, the supply of these is limited to 4000 of component X and 3500 of component Y. The following table provides details on the number of each component required for each product and the profit per unit.

....................................Components Required/Unit........................
.....................................A......................B........................Profit/Unit
Fast.............................18.....................6..............................$24
SuperFast....................12.....................10............................$40
