It evaluates the funding of the production and the wages of the workers as presented in the following table: D | P | W 1 | 1,5 | 2 2 | 2 | 3,4 3 | 7 | 4 4 | 12 | 5,6 5 | 18 | 12 6 | 21 | 18 7 | 26 | 30 8 | 27 | 32 9 | 25 | 35 10 | 20 | 30 11 | 17 | 25 12 | 13 | 18 where D = time (the nth week), P = the production which is resulted, and W = the wages the question is how to determine the optimum time when the production and the wages are maximum? any help would be greatly appreciated.
