2. Let x1 = number of part 1 produced per day and
x2 = number of part 2 produced per day
Our objective function is to maximize Z = minimum(x1, x2)

Let y = minimum of (x1, x2), where y represents the number of completed assembilies. So
x1 >= y and x2 >= y

Maximize Z = y

Subject to:

4x1 + 3x2 <= 480
3x1 + 5x2 <= 480
x1 - 2x2 <= 30
-x1 + 2x2 <= 30
x1 - y >= 0
x2 - y >= 0

x1, x2 and y >= 0
