*Note: Macros must be enabled to open and use the Simulation Template spreadsheet.*

A. Set up the system of **four** constraints that are plotted, as shown on the graph in the attached “Simulation Template, **showing all work necessary to arrive at the equations.**

1. Explain why *each* constraint is a minimum or a maximum constraint.

2. Identify the objective function.

B. Determine the profit if the company produces a combination of cases of Brand X and Brand Y that lies on the black-dashed objective function line (profit line) as shown on the graph in the attached “Simulation Template”.

C. Determine optimum production with the greatest amount of profit by doing the following:

1. Determine how many cases of Brand X should be produced during *each* production period, showing all your work.

2. Determine how many cases of Brand Y should be produced during *each* production period, showing all your work.

3. Explain how the feasible region of the provided graph was used to arrive at your calculations for parts C1 and C2.

*Note: Partial cases are allowed as part of the solution.*

D. Determine the total contribution to profit that would be generated by the production levels you gave in parts C1 and C2, showing all of your work.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL WORK MUST BE SHOWN AS INDICATED ON THE ASSIGNMENT
