Pizza Pizzazz, Inc., is a producer of frozen pizza products. The company makes a profit of $1.00 for each regular pizza it produces and $1.50 for each deluxe pizza produced. Each pizza includes a combination of dough and topping mix. The firm currently has 150 pounds of dough mix and 50 pounds of topping mix.

Based on past demand, Pizza Pizzazz believes it can sell at least 50 regular pizzas and at least 25 deluxe pizzas. How many regular and deluxe pizzas should the company make to maximize profit?
