The Highly Improbable Foods Company makes vegetarian versions of hamburgers, hot dogs, and chicken wings, and they offer two platters. Platter A consists of one burger, three hot dogs, and $5$ chicken wings, which costs $\$16.$ Platter B consists of two burgers, one hot dog, and $8$ chicken wings, which costs $\$20.$ A picnic organizer requires $80$ hamburgers, $95$ hot dogs, and $380$ chicken wings. (There can be leftovers, but these are the minimum requirements.) What is the minimum cost (in dollars)?

20 platters A =20 x $16 = $320 which will give you: 20 burgers, 60 hot dogs and 100 chicken wings.

 

35 platters B =35 x $20 = $700 which will give you: 70 burgers, 35 hot dogs and 280 chicken wings. 


Total cost =$320 + $700 =$1,020 minimum cost.


Will give you: 70+20 =90 burgers
                       60+35 =95 hot dogs
                       100+280 =380 chicken wings.
