A company makes three products X, Y and Z. Each product requires processing by three machines A, B and C. The time required to produce one unit of each product is shown below.

Product X:-
Machine A: 1
Machine B: 2
Machine C: 2

Product Y:
Machine A:2
Machine B: 2
Machine C: 2

Product Z:
Machine A:2
Machine B: 1
Machine C:4

The machines are available for 200, 525 and 350 hours each month. How many units of each product can be manufactured per month if all three machines are utilized to their full capacity?
