A workshop makes cupboards and tables using two artisans A and B every cupboard made requires 3 days of work by artisan A and 2 days of work by artisan B. Every table made requires 2 days of work by artisan A and 2 days of work by artisan B.
In one month artisan A worked in less than 24 while artisan B Worked for Not More Than 18 Days. The workshop made x cupboards and y tables in that month. (a) Write all the inequalities which must be satisfied by x and y. (b) Represent the inequalities in (a) on the grid provided. (c) The workshop makes a profit of Ksh 6 000 on each cupboard and Ksh4 000 on each table.
