**Question 2**

A company manufactures two types of products, A and B. Product A requires 2 units of resource X, 1 unit of resource Y, and 3 units of resource Z. Product B requires 1 unit of resource X, 3 units of resource Y, 2 units of resource Z, and 1 unit of resource W. The company has 100 units of resource X, 90 units of resource Y, 120 units of resource Z, and 80 units of resource W. Product A brings in a profit of $5, while product B brings in a profit of $4.
