  Numerical Example

L  = 10

Total available LABOR is 10 man-hours.

b  .5

half an hour of LABOR is needed to BAKE one loaf of BREAD

c  =  1

one hour of LABOR is needed to WEAVE one yard of CLOTH

Suppose we want  6 loaves of  BREAD.

QB   =  6

How much CLOTH can we produce?

QC  =   ?

BAKING 6 loaves of BREAD takes
3
hours of LABOR.

LB  =   b QB =  (.5) 6 = 3

7 hours remain for WEAVING CLOTH

LC L - LB10 - 3 = 7

In 7 hours we can WEAVE
at most
7 yards of CLOTH


Q
C  LC / c 7 / 1  = 7
