Major Bill Bligh, director of the Army War College's new 6-month attaché training program, is concerned about how the 20 officers taking the course spend their precious time while in his charge.

Major Bligh recognizes that there are 168 hours per week and thinks that his students have been using them rather inefficiently. Bligh lets

X1 = number of hours of sleep needed per week

X2 = number of personal hours 1eating, personal hygiene, handling laundary, and so on2

X3 = number of hours of class and studying

X4 = number of hours of social time off base 1dating, sports, family visits, and so on2
