A particular portfolio consists of U shares of U.S. Oil and H;shares of Huber Steel. The annual return for U.S. Oil is $3 per share and the;annual return for Huber Steel is $5 per share. U.S. Oil sells for $25 per share;and Huber Steel sells for $50 per share. The portfolio has $80,000 to be;invested. The;portfolio risk index (.50 per share of U.S. Oil;and 0.25 per share for Huber Steel) has a maximum of 700. In addition, the;portfolio is limited to a maximum of 1000 shares of U.S. Oil.
