To make it clearer, a mathematical formulation of this problem would be:

**Maximize R=550x+1100y**

where quantities x and y have to be chosen in order to maximize R.

There are 4 linear constraints (I know how to handle them) and 2 nonlinear constraints, which both include a ratio of x and y:

(5,379+x)/(3,260+y) ≥ 1.4

(5,379+x)/(3,260+y) ≤ 1.75

Would really appreciate your help on how to convert these 2 constraints in some way or on how to approach this problem in general
