Maxwell Manufacturing Linear Programming Model, Extreme Poin

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?
