What is the total risk and total return, Financial Accounting

Financials Investments, a group of financial advisors and retirement planners, has been requested to provide advice on how to invest $200,000 for one of its clients. The client has stipulated that the money must be put into either stocks fund or a money market fund, and the annual return should be at least $14,000. Other conditions related to risk have also been specified, and the following linear program was developed to help with this investment decision:

Minimize Risk = 12S + 5M

Subject to:

                             S + M = 200,000 (total invest is $200,000)

               0.10S + 0.05M ≥ 14,000 (return must be at least $14,000)

                                    M ≥ 40,000 (at least $40,000 must be in money market)

                                 S, M ≥0

Where

S = dollars invested in stock fund

M = dollars invested in money market fund
