Expert Answer

Step 1

Let x units of receiver and y unit...

Then the number of hours taken to assemble X units of receiver and y units of CD player is
8x +15y
According to question, 160 hours are available for assembly. Therefore, wehave
8x 15160
Similarly, for the testing and shipping department, we have
8x 2y 22
Also, x and y are the number of units produced. Hence,
x 20, y 20
