Let $x$ = number of type A tables: $\:x \ge 0$ Let $y$ = number of type B tables: $\:y \ge 0$ We have: $\quad \begin{array}{cccc} & \text{boards} & \text{hours} & \text{Revenue} \\ \hline A & 2x & 7x & 1200x \\ B & y & 8y & 800y \\ \hline & 6 & 28 \\ \hline \end{array}$ In Quadrant I, we must graph and shade: $\quad\begin{array}{ccc} 2x + y & \le & 6 \\ 7x + 8y &\le & 28 \end{array}$ Then find the coordinates of the vertices of the shaded area. Then substitute them into the Revenue function: $\:R \;=\;1200x+800y$ $\quad$ and determine which produces maximum revenue.
