    Maxwell Manufacturing makes two models of felt tip marking pens. There are 3 processing steps required for the pen production. Times (hours) are given in the table below.

    Capped Clickable Available
    Extrusion 3 5 45
    Ink Fill 4 2 36
    Molding 4 1 30

    The profit for each capped lot is $1000, and each Clickable lot yields a profit of $800.

    a) What is the linear programming model for this problem?
    b) What are the extreme points?
    c) What is the optimal solution?
