In this tutorial, we learn how to identify the constraints & function to be optimized. When you are asked for the elements of constraints, you are being asked for the plain English version. If you are told you only have so much of something inside of a written problem, then take into account all of the limits that are listed. Once you have these, write them down so you have them in one place. After this, write down the number for the unrestricted part of the problem. After this, you will be able to solve the problem more easily and know which are the constraints and which aren't.
