It looks like you need something that can do optimization.
R provides optim() and nlminb().

A similar question was posted several days ago.
See  http://r.789695.n4.nabble.com/Optimization-in-R-similar-to-MS-Excel-Solver-td4646759.html

You might have some use for package limSolve and function lsei.

Also see the CRAN Optimization Task View (http://cran.r-project.org/web/views/Optimization.html)
