Bevco manufactures an orange-flavored soft drink called Oranj by
combining orange soda and orange juice. Each ounce of orange soda
contains 0.5 oz. of sugar and 1 mg. of vitamin C. Each ounce of
orange juice contains 0.25 oz. of sugar and 3 mg. of vitamin C. It
costs Bevco $0.02 to produce an ounce of orange soda and $0.03 to
produce an ounce of orange juice. Bevco's marketing department has
decided that each 10 oz. bottle of Oranj must contain at least 20
mg. of vitamin C and at most 4 oz. of sugar. Use linear programming
to determine how Bevco can meet the marketing department's
requirements at minimum cost.
