Gin is 45% alcohol by volume and tonic is non-alcoholic. Its required to mix gin and tonics which are at least 10% alcohol by volume and contain atleast 200ml of liquid but at most 30ml of alcohol

a) what are the greatest and least amounts of gin a drink can contain
b) what are the greatest and least amounts of tonic a drink can contain

I understand you would first make the constraints x?30, x+y?10, x+y?200 ,
x?0, y?0,

Secondly do you need to draw a graph?

Any help would be appreciated 0

Any help would be appreciated A graph would be useful, but if you can do it without, fair enough.

I presume x is the amount of gin and y is the amount of tonic.

What constraints did you end up with? Several of those, as they, stands don't look right.

Since the gin is 45% alcohol by volume, then 100ml of gin gives 45 ml of alcohol.

I had x>= 0 , y>=0 , 0.45x+y/x+y >= 0.10 (because it says atleast 10 percent alcohol), x+y >= 200 , and Im so confused how to put in atmost 30ml of alcohol.

Im just going in circles right now 0

That's not correct - the numerator. You need amount of alcohol over total amount >=0.1
There's no alcohol in tonic.

how to put in atmost 30ml of alcohol.
Amount of alcohol is 0.45x, hence 0.45x <= 30

I meant (0)y which would make it a 0!! Thankyou so much you're a lifesaver ) How would I work to get the greatest and least amount from there?

(sorry for being such a bother)

Do a graph and plot the feasible region.

And find the intersections right? THANKYOU SO MUCH, you're amazing  0

so what should this have been: 0.45x+y/x+y >= 0.10?

There's no alcohol in the tonic, so:

0.45x/(x+y) >= 0.10
