Cedar Point amusement park management is preparing the park's annual promotional plan for the coming season. Several advertising alternatives exist: newspaper, television, radio, and displays at recreational shows. The information below shows the characteristics associated with each of the advertising alternatives, as well as the maximum number of placements available in each medium. Given an advertising budget of $125,000, how many placements should be made in each medium to maximize total audience exposure? Formulate this as a linear programming problem to be solved using QM.

2. A small furniture manufacturer produces tables and chairs. Each product must go through three stages of the manufacturing process: assembly, finishing, and inspection. Each table requires 3 hours of assembly, 2 hours of finishing, and 1 hour of inspection. Each chair requires 2 hours of assembly, 2 hours of finishing, and 1 hour of inspection. The profit per table is $120, while the profit per chair is $80. Currently, each week there are 200 hours of assembly time available, 180 hours of finishing time, and 40 hours of inspection time. To keep a balance, the number of chairs produced should be at least twice the number of tables. Also, the number of chairs cannot exceed six times the number of tables. How many tables and chairs should the furniture manufacturer produce to maximize profit?
