David Booth operates Booth Bootcamp Pty Ltd. David is a graduate of a sports and a recreation course, offers customised adventures for business groups wanting to develop their staff. Two clients have approached Booth Bootcamp Pty Ltd to run an adventure in the first week of April but David can run only one adventure at a time and has to choose which alternative will maximise profit. Both adventures will require a week of David’s time at a cost of \$1100 and the use of the company’s specially fitted-out SUV at a cost of \$2800.
