Hi I am learning R currently and I having trouble structuring a program.


Data consists of 1 data frame with a day of the week, a class list, and a
utility score.


Date                   Class                   Utility


Monday              Chem                  85

Monday              Physics               75

Tuesday              Chem                  95

Tuesday              Math                  93

Tuesday              History               87

Tuesday              Language           86


And so on through Friday.


I want to maximize total utility (the sum) given 2 constraints:


1.	The number of classes you must take each day is fixed. (Must take 1
class on Monday, 2 on Tuesday, 1 on Wednesday etc.)
2.	No repeats- You can only take any given class zero or one time.  


Any help to go about this would be appreciated.


Thank you.
