Resolved Question:

You work for a small business whose main product is office paper for copiers/fax/printers. Your boss has asked you to produce as many boxes of paper as possible next quarter because he is confident that your company will sell everything you produce. Your accounting department gives you the following information: To produce each box of paper requires 4 hours of labor and $30 in supplies You only have 97 hours of labor to use up in the next quarter You only have $315 to use for supplies

Develop a linear programming formulation to maximize the number of boxes produced. Then, implement your formulation in MS Excel and use the Solver Add-In to find the optimal solution.
