Single: Stooges 1

Consider the case where you have available to you four equally productive workers. Since each has been on the job for a different amount of time, they earn different daily wages:

Larry at $6 per day
Curly at $3 per day
Moe at $7 per day
Shemp at $5 per day

There are also five tasks, each requiring only one worker, that can only be done today that provide you with a financial benefit:

Iron Pants for $10
Blend Scotch for $8
Serve Dinner Guests for $6
Unpack the Mummy for $4
Save the Queen for $2

There is no financial benefit if you perform these tasks tomorrow. Consider the optimal allocation of tasks. Please treat ties in favor of production.

Which of the tasks will remain undone?

Question options:

  • All will be done
  • Serve Dinner Guests
  • Iron Pants
  • Blend Scotch
  • Unpack the Mummy
