The Canine Products company offers two dog foods, Frisky Pup and

Husky Hound, that are made from a blend of cereal and meat. A package of Frisky

Pup requires 1 pound of cereal and 1.5 pounds of meat, and sells for $7. A package

of Husky Hound uses 2 pounds of cereal and 1 pound of meat, and sells for $6. Raw

cereal costs $1 per pound and raw meat costs $2 per pound. It also costs $1.40 topackage the Frisky Pup and $0.60 to package the Husky Hound. A total of 240,000

pounds of cereal and 180,000 pounds of meat are available each month. The only

production bottleneck is that the factory can only package 110,000 bags of Frisky

Pup per month. Needless to say, management would like to maximize proﬁt.

(a) Formulate the problem as a linear program in two variables.

(b) Graph the feasible region, give the coordinates of every vertex, and circle the

vertex maximizing proﬁt. What is the maximum proﬁt possible
