The Whitt Window Company, a company with only three employees, makes two different kinds of hand-crafted windows: a wood-framed and an aluminum-framed window. The company earns $300 profit for each wood-framed window and $150 profit for each aluminum-framed window. Doug makes the wood frames and can make 6 per day. Linda makes the aluminum frames and can make 4 per day. Bob forms and cuts the glass and can make 48 square feet of glass per day.
