### Customer Question

I need to formulate the Aggregate Planning problem in excel and use Excel Solver to find the total minimum price for the workforce. I have developed the modeled in excel and have a lot of equations done, but just cannot figure out the constraints and get the solver to work correctly. Please disregard the part where it says what I attempted. I attached the problem along with the optimal solution

k  =   \$60,000/250  =  \$240 per worker per day
