I just did it in order so smart savigs was x, capital investment, y and the last one z. The issue arose because i didnt know what to put for the inequalities

Anyone? Anything
Couldn't you use these as the inequalities?
x = Smart savings
y = Capital Investor
z = Money Monthly
80,000x >= 100,000
120,000y >= 100,000
200,000z >= 100,000

1000x <= 40,000
2000y <= 40,000
2500z <= 40,000

x+y+z <= 100,000
Objective function: P = x+y+z
Then set the objective function to equal 0 and introduce slack variables for the inequalities.
