Coffee Beans Mrs. Olsen, a coffee processor, markets three blends of coffee. They are; Brand X , Minim and Taster's Reject. Olsen uses two types of coffee beans to make the three different brands; Columbian and Mexican Beans. The following chart list the composition of the blends: Brand Percentage of Columbian Beans Percentage of Mexican Beans Brand X 80% 20% Minim 50% 50% Tasters Reject 30% 70% Ms. Olsen has already purchased 20,000 pounds of Columbian beans at 90 cents per pound, and she has purchased 30,000 pounds of Mexican beans at 50 cents per pound. At such, these resources are available for use. Unused Columbian beans can be sold at cost to another processor, but unused Mexican beans can be sold only for 35 cents per pound. Due to warehouse space limitations, Ms. Olsen must dispose of all unused beans.
