Barbara and Jenny’s Ice Cream Company produces four different flavors of ice cream: vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and peanut fudge.

It takes one day to produce the ice cream and a maximum of 100 gallons can be produced at one time. Cleaning is required only when flavors are switched. The production for one flavor will be completed prior to beginning production for another flavor. Cleaning is always started at the beginning of a day. Treating each ice cream flavor as a different job, find the following:
