To reduce the purchase of potato and green beans, so as to meet the conditions of the various constraints to achieve the goal of minimizing the purchase cost.
Potatoes Green Beans
Protein 1.5 g per 100 g → 1.5% 2 g per 100 g → 2%
Iron 0.3 mg per 100 g → 0.3% 1.2 mg per 100 g → 1.2%
Vitamin C 12 mg per 100 g → 12% 10 mg per 100 g → 10%

Iron 6.804 mg per 10 ounces → 2.4 mg per 100 g → 2.4%
Vitamin C 0 0%
