Parameters/Background
The case study involving Julia’s food booth …. (provide background and parameters very similar to an Executive Summary in a Business Report). Julia is considering leasing a food booth outside Tech Stadium at home (6) football games. If she clears \$1000 in profit for each game she believes it will be worth leasing the booth. \$1000 per game to lease the booth

\$600 to lease a warming oven
She has \$1500 to purchase food for first game and will for remaining 5 games she will purchase her ingredients with money made from previous game. Each pizza costs \$6 for 8 slices which is 0.75 per slice, and she will sell it for \$1.50 Each hot dog costs 0.45, and she will sell it for \$1.50

Each BBQ Sandwich costs 0.90, and she will sell it for \$2.25 There are Food Cost, Oven and Ratio Constraints that include:

QM assessment (Describe the Excel Solver and/or QM for Windows tool input)
Pizza Slices x1Hot Dogs x2BBQ x3 RHS

Maximize
Food Costs = 0

Equation form (fill in coefficients, amounts, etc.)

Maximize Z (profit) = Pizza Slices 0.75x1 + Hot Dogs ___x2 + BBQ ___ x3 Food Cost Constraint: __x1 + __ x2 + __x3 = 0

Linear Programming Results (from Excel Solver and/or QM for Windows):

Optimal Value (Z) =
