A dietician works in a hospital and prepares meals under the guidance of a physician. Suppose that for a particular patient, a physician prescribes a meal to have 950 calories, 65 g of protein, and 340 mg of vitamin C. The dietician decides to prepare the meal using steak (each 3-oz serving contains 300 Cal, 20 g of protein, and no vitamin C), baked potatoes (one baked potato contains 100 Cal, 5 g of protein, and 20 mg of vitamin C), and Brussels sprouts (one 156-g serving contains 50 Cal, 5 g of protein, and 100 mg of vitamin C). How many servings of each food are required to satisfy the physician's requirements?
