solve the game by linear programming, Mathematics

UA and DU are preparing for the NCAA basketball game championship. They are setting up their strategies for the championship game. Assessing the strength of their "benches", each coach comes up with four strategies for rotating his players during the game. The ability of each team to score 2-pointers, 3-pointers, and free throws is a key factor in determining the final score of the game. The following table summarizes the net points UA will score per possession as a function of the different strategies available to each team.
