Recall the Innis Investments problem. Letting

S = units purchased in the stock fund

M = units purchased in the money market fund

Leads to the following formulation:

Min8S + 3M

s.t.

50S + 100M â‰¤ 1,200,000Funds available

5S + 4M â‰¥ 60,000Annual income

M â‰¥ 3,000Units in money market

S, M â‰¥ 0

The computer solution is shown in Figure.
