A team of students has entered a robot competition in which their robot must start from a base location move to and grab objects and return them to the base to score points. The point values assigned to the objects are 100 50 and 25 points depending on their distance from the base. There is a 5-minute time limit for the competition; only objects returned to the base will be counted in the scoring. The team has practiced retrieving all 10 objects; times for completing the round trip to the object and bringing it back to the base along with the point values of each are shown in table below: Use Excel Solver to determine the objects that should be retrieved within the 5-minute time limit in order to maximize the teams score.
