Accepted Solution

A:
Answer: AStep-by-step explanation: Canoe → 8h →X                                             Rowboat → 5h → YFabrication department has at most 107, which means it need to be less than 107 hours.This way, the amount of time to fabricate X canoes = 8X plus the amount of time to fabricate Y Rowboat = 5Y must be less than 107.8X + 5Y < 107
