The New England produces two cheese spread by blending mild cheddar cheese with extra sharp cheddar cheese. These cheese spreads are packages in 12-ounce containers, which are then sold to distributors throughout the Northeast. The regular blend contains 80% mild cheddar and 20% extra sharp, and Zest blend contains 60% mild cheddar and 40% extra sharp. This year, a local dairy cooperative offered to provide up to 8100 pounds of mid cheddar cheese for $1.20 per pound and up to 3000 pounds of extra sharp cheddar cheese for $1.40 per pound. The cost to blend and package the cheese spreads, excluding the cost of the cheese, is $0.20 per container. If each container of Zesty is sold for $2.20, how many containers o Regular and Zesty should New England Cheese produce?
