A humorous mathematical oversight in a New York Times article provides a great 'real life' linear systems application problem!
The problem involves the opening week rental and sales income from Sony's controversial movie 'The Interview'. The article claims that the number of rentals and sales is not known, but only the total profits from both, and the combined number of transactions... honestly, it's like they wrote the article for a math text book :)
