Two types of ads are available--those during prime time hours and those at other times. Each prime time ad costs $390 and reaches 8,200 people, while the off peak ads each cost $240 and reach 5,100 people. Bailey has budgeted $1,800 per week for advertising. Based on comments from her customers, Bailey wants to have at least 2 prime time ads and nor more than 6 off peak ads.
