Do you help with linear programming? A wireless phone

Customer Question

Do you help with linear programming?
A wireless phone provider needs to staff a store for the evening hours, 5:00 PM to 11:00 PM, with full time and part time staff. Full time staff will work the entire time, and pat time staff will work three consecutive hours.
No part time staff can work the last hour (10:00 – 11:00).
40% of full time staff will go to a meeting (and not working with customers) at from 6:00 – 7:00, and 60% of full time staff will go from 7:00 – 8:00.
Full time staff must work 70% of all work hours.
Full time staff earns $120 for their 6 hour shift and the part time staff earns $42 for their 3 hour shift.
The table gives the minimum number of staff needed to work with customers for each hour.
Write a linear program that minimizes the cost of staffing the evening hours of the store.
Time Number of Staff
5:00 – 6:00 14
6:00 – 7:00 12
7:00 – 8:00 11
8:00 – 9:00 9
9:00- 10:00 7
10:00 – 11:00 4
