I need help trying to find the answer. I have tried about 20 different constraints and all of them are wrong. I don't know what I am doing wrong. Some of the constraints that I have tried are x4 + x6 = 175 and x6 + 0 = 175 just to give you an idea of the way that I am thinking. Evidently it is wrong. Please guide me in the

Sue and Joan are making cloth pins for a craft show. They have enough fabric to make at most 40 giraffe pins and 80 frogs. They know they will be able to sell at least 20 giraffes and 60 frogs.
