Hi, everyone,

I am very new at using Excel solver, so I have been trying to complete practice exercises to better my understanding. However, the latest exercise that I found is confusing me.

Here is the exercise:

Here is my spreadsheet:
Screen_Hunter_06_Jan_06_20_53.jpg


... with formulas if necessary:
Screen_Hunter_07_Jan_06_20_53.jpg


and my Solver parameters:
Screen_Hunter_07_Jan_06_20_54.jpg


I am not very confident in my ability to use Solver yet, so I am unsure of my answer. And unfortunately, I have no way to check it. Any help would be appreciated!

Also, if anyone has any other beginner Solver guides, I would be interested in checking them out.
