Indiana Jones has made it through the deadly traps of an ancient temple and has discovered ten treasures inside.
Unfortunately, his knapsack is too small to carry them all, so he must choose (wisely). He has made the following estimates of the objects’ weights and values.

```Treasure             **Weight ** Value (\$)
Crown of Atahualpa   ** 4 lb. ** 4,000
Mask of the Ancients ** 5 lb. ** 5,000
Itzcoatl’s Orb       ** 6 lb. ** 9,000
Tablet of the Heavens** 7 lb. ** 7,000
Golden Quetzal       **13 lb. **17,000
Key of Silver Light  ** 2 lb. ** 2,000
Idol of Inti         **10 lb. **15,000
Eternal Quipu        ** 5 lb. ** 8,000
Goblet of Uxmal      ** 3 lb. ** 4,000
Sacred Stone of Cuzco** 8 lb. **11,000
```

If his knapsack can hold at most 20 pounds of treasure, which objects should he take to maximize the value of his loot?
