## Question:

A group of college students are starting a small business called Custom Tech. They make customized cell phone and tablet cases. Their profits are $40 for the cell phone case and $60 for the tablet case. The process involves both design hours and manufacturing hours. It takes 0.5 hour to design and 0.3 hour to manufacture a customized phone case. It takes 0.4 hour to design and 0.4 hour to manufacture a customized tablet case. Since the design part is completed by students attending school, they can allocate no more than 100 hours per day for design. They are sharing a single manufacturing machine with another company and only have 8 hours per day to use it. Let x represent the number of customized cell phone cases and y represent the number of customized tablet cases.

a. Write the profit objective function.

b. Write the design constraint inequality.

c. Write the manufacturing constraint inequality.
