    Answer:

    Option C.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let x represent the number of loaves of pumpkin bread and y represent the number of loaves of zucchini bread Susan bakes.

                  Pumpkin bread           zucchini bread                Total

    Eggs               2                                     3                           15        

    Flour(cups)     3                                     4                           16

    Selling price    $5                                  $4

    Susan wants to maximize the money raised at the bake sale.

    Objective function :

    P=5x+4y

    Subject to constraints:

    2x+3y\leq 15

    3x+4y\leq 16

    x,y \geq 0

    Since the objective function is P = 5x + 4y, therefore the correct option is C.
