Transcribed Image Text: 3. Robertville Furniture Company (RFC) makes two types of dressers: the Classic and the Modern.
RFC sells the Classic for $310 and the Modern for $350. At these prices RFC believes it can sell up to
20 Classic and 25 Modern dressers per week. Each type of dresser is made of oak and covered with
a pecan veneer. The wood requirements for each dresser are given in the table. Oak costs $1.50 per
board foot, and pecan veneer costs $2 per square foot. The dressers must go through two
manufacturing departments: cutting and veneering. The machine hours required for each dresser
are also given below. RFC has only 40 hours of production time available each week in each
department, and it can obtain up to 2000 board feet of oak and 1500 square feet of pecan veneer
each week. The cost of operating each manufacturing department is essentially fixed, so RFC would
like to maximize its profit. Formulate RFC’s problem as a linear program, defining your variables
clearly.
