Question

A poor sumo wrestler whose diet consists of only rice, chankonabe (a traditional Japanese stew) and beer wants to maximize his calorie intake. Each cup of rice has 200 calories, 0.4 grams of fat and costs \$0.50. Each bowl of chankonabe has 650 calories, 11 grams of fat and costs \$14. Each pint of beer has 204 calories, 0 grams of fat and costs \$4. The sumo wrestler has a daily budget of \$200 for food. To enjoy a wider variety of food, he would like his calorie intake from rice to be at most 50% of his total daily calorie intake. His daily fat intake should be at least 60 grams.

Let R = the number of cups of rice he eats on a daily basis

Let C = the number of bowls of chankonabe he eat on a daily basis

Let B = the number of pints of beer he drinks on a daily basis

Which of the following is the mathematical representation of his requirement “he would like his calorie intake from rice to be at most 50% of his total daily calorie intake.”?

Select one:

a. R <= 50%

b. 0.5R – 0.5C – 0.5B >= 0

c. 0.5R – 0.5 C – 0.5 B <= 0

d. 100R – 325C – 102B <= 0

e. R >= 50%
