Having alot of trouble figuring out this problem. I feel if I can just see how its done I can complete the few other problems like this i have. I wasnt in school for this portion of the chapter due to a surgery so im kind of in the dark on this whole process. Anywho heres the problem:

you have decided to make a little extra money fro your club by selling candy. You can buy M&m's and Snicker bars at cost from the Price Club, but there is a quantity limit. Your book bag holds no more than 70 units of candy. You can bring no more than 50 Snickers on any one day and no more than 30 M&M's on any one day. Snickers cost you 30 cents each and M&ms cost you 25 cents each. You sell them each fro 50 cents. How can you maximize your profit?
