Stefan "The Butcher" Genchev makes krenvirshi, babek, sazdarma, and lukanka in his garage. The profit contributions, ingredients, and taxes are displayed in the table.
A quick check of the stock room (and refrigerator) reveals that Stefan has on hand 30,000 kilos of beef, 20,000 kilos of pork, 18 kilograms of spice, and 75,000 casings. In addition, he found 10,000 leva in his sock drawer to help him pay the taxes he will face.
Like any good butcher, Stefan's top priority is to maximize his profit (d1), and like any entrepreneur, his secondary goal would be to minimize the taxes (d2) he is paying. After eyeballing the two types of meat, he's a little concerned about the viable life of the pork he has on hand, so a tertiary goal would be to use up as much of the pork as he possibly can (d3). Finally, he would like to make as many crates of his sausages (d4) as he possibly can.
What is the casings constraint?
