Puzzlor

We will now be sending out via e-mail a question that would require an IE skill in order to solve. We will collect answers from the membership and then “showcase” the best or most creative solutions.

Here is the Puzzlor to be solved before the August 12th meeting.

NewBiz Inc., a company that makes and sells trophies anticipates a demand for at least 2300 football trophies, 1900 baseball trophies, and 2100 soccer trophies. Production limitations restrict NewBiz Inc. from making more than 3400 football trophies, 2500 baseball trophies, and 2750 soccer trophies in one day. In order to break even with the distribution company, NewBiz estimates they need to ship at least 5500 trophies, but only has enough trucks to deliver 7500. The football trophies earn $9.50 in profit each, the baseball trophies earn $7.25 in profit each, and soccer trophies earn $8.00 in profit each.

How much of each trophy does NewBiz Inc. need to make in order to maximize profit?
Which product should NewBiz Inc. invest more production equipment and floor space to in order to increase profits (assuming investment will be profitable)? Why?

Submit your responses to the Puzzlor to bstrevens19@gmail.com.
