Find the maximum possible efficiency, Physics

High temperatures and pressures are given for the following power plants.

ISU co-generation:   400 psi, 750F

City of Ames with RDF:   700 psi, 850F

Super-critical power plant  3500 psi, 1100F

Assuming a low temperature of 75F, find the maximum possible efficiency of each of these 3 cycles.
