Operations research word problem help appreciated!

Hi ya'll. I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me in answering these two questions related to this problem. Thank you.

Problem - Ronald has just discovered four new ingredients for making a very potent potion that will raise his IQ by 15 points. We can only identify the ingredients as A, B, C and D, which combines several traditional ingredients. The decision variables are therefore xA; xB; xC and xD, which represents the amounts of each ingredient we use. To protect his secrets, Ronald has chosen to keep one of his constraints secret.

Questions - What is the current cost of using these ingredients?

The supplier of xA has reduced its price to 1 dollar. How would this affect the quantities of the ingredients used and what is the new optimal cost of the potion?
