How can I find constraints in a linear programming word problem?

A toy manufacturer makes wooden blocks and horses.  The production process involves twobasic types of labor: carpentry and design. A block requires 2 hours of carpentry and 1 hour of design, and a horse requires 1hour of carpentry and 3 hours of design.  The profit is $10 per block and $14 per horse.  The manufacturer's employeescan supply a maximum of 10 hours of carpentry work and 15 hours of design work per day.  How many blocks and horses should be made each day to maximize profit?
