Solve the problem.

Certain laboratory animals must have at least 30 g of protein and at least 20 g of fat per feeding period. These nutrients come from food A, which costs $0.18 per unit and supplies 2 g of protein and 4 g of fat; and from food B, which costs $0.12 per unit and has 6 g of protein and 2 g of fat. Food B is purchased under a long-term contract requiring that at least 2 units of B be used per serving. How much of each food must be purchased to produce the minimum cost per serving? What is the minimum cost?
