14. A doctor has told a patient to take vitamin pills. The patient needs at least 24 units of
vitamin A, at least 8 units of vitamin C, and at least 81 units of vitamin D. The red vitamin
pills cost \$0.20 each and contain 7 units of A, 1 unit of C, and 7 units of D. The blue
vitamin pills cost \$0.40 each and contain 3 units of A, 1 unit of C, and 12 units of D. How
many pills should the patient take each day to minimize costs?
