4x1+6x2+7x3+8x4=z

s.t.

2x1+3x2+4x3+7x4<=4600

3x1+4x2+5x3+6x4<=5000

x1+x2+x3+x4=950

x4>=400

x1,x2,x3,x4 are integers

400 of 1st type, 150 of 2nd and 400 of 4th type

If you consider x3 and x1, for every x3 you increase at the expense of an x1 (trade out) the sales increases and you are still within the constraints meaning more optimal profit.
