A study table requires 2 h of a skilled worker and 2 h of an unskilled worker. A computer table requires 2 h of a skilled worker and 5 h of an unskilled worker. As per the industrial laws, no one is allowed to work for more than 38 h a week. The manufacturer can sell as many tables as he can produce. If the profit for a study table is $100 and for a computer table$160, how many study and computer tables should the manufacturer produce in a week in order to maximize the overall profit?
