    A charity produces mixed packs of posters and flyers to send out to sponsors. Pack A contains 40 posters and 20 flyers.
    Pack B contains 30 posters and 50 flyers.
    The charity must send out at least 15000 flyers.
    The charity wants between 40% and 60% of the total packs produced to be Pack As.
    Posters cost 15p each and flyers cost 3p each.
    The charity wishes to minimise its costs.
    Let x represent the number of Pack As produced, and y represent the number of Pack Bs produced.

    Formulate this as a linear programming problem, stating the objective and listing the constraints as
    simplified inequalities with integer coefficients.
    You should not attempt to solve the problem



    HOW WOULD YOU DO THE MINIMAL FUNCTION WITH THE 15P AND 3P
