Maximize z = 5x_{1} + 6x_{2}, Subject to 2x_{1} + 3x_{2} ≤ 18, 2x_{1} + x_{2} ≤ 12, x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

Solution:

OAED is the feasible region O(0, 0) A(0, 6) D (6, 0)

and E is the intersection of 2x_{1} + 3x_{2} = 18 and 2x_{1} + x_{2} = 12

For E, Solving, 2x_{1} + 3x_{2} = 18 …….(i)

2x_{1} + x_{2} = 12 ……(ii)

We get x_{1} = 4.5, x_{2} = 3

∴ E = (4.5, 3)

∴ Maximum value of z = 40.5 at E(4.5, 3)

Question 2.

Minimize z = 4x + 2y, Subject to 3x + y ≥ 27, x + y ≥ 21, x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

Solution:

and E is the point of intersection of 3x + y = 27 and x + y = 21

For E, Solving 3x + y = 27 ………(i)

x + y = 21 …….(ii)

We get x = 3, y = 18

∴ E(3, 18)

∴ Minimum value of z = 48 at (3, 18)

Question 3.

Maximize z = 6x + 10y, subject to 3x + 5y ≤ 10, 5x + 3y ≤ 15, x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

OAED is the feasible region;

O(0, 0), A (0, 2) D (3, 0) and E is the point of intersection of 3x + 5y = 10 and 5x + 3y = 15

For E, Solving 3x + 5y = 10

5x + 3y = 15

We get, x = \(\frac{45}{16}\), y = \(\frac{5}{16}\)

∴ E(\(\frac{45}{16}\), \(\frac{5}{16}\))

Since the maximum value of z = 20 at two points i.e, at A(0, 2) and E(\(\frac{45}{16}\), \(\frac{5}{16}\)).

z is maximum at all points on segment AE.

Hence it has infinite number of solutions.

∴ Minimum value z = 7 at E(2, 1)

Question 5.

Maximize z = 4x_{1} + 3x_{2}, Subject to 3x_{1} + x_{2} ≤ 15, 3x_{1} + 4x_{2} ≤ 24, x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

E is the point of intersection of 3x_{1} + x_{2} = 15 and 3x_{1} + 4x_{2} = 24

For E, Solving 3x_{1} + x_{2} = 15 ……..(i)

3x_{1} + 4x_{2} = 24 …….(ii)

We get, x_{1} = 4, x_{2} = 3

∴ E(4, 3)

∴ Maximum value of z = 25 at (4, 3)

Question 6.

Maximize z = 60x + 50y, Subject to x + 2y ≤ 40, 3x + 2y ≤ 60, x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

Solution:

OAED is the feasible region O(0, 0), A(0, 20), D(20, 0)

E is x + 2y = 40 and 3x + 2y = 60

For E, Solving x + 2y = 40

3x + 2y = 60

We get, x = 10, y = 15

∴ E = (10, 15)

∴ Maximum value of z = 1350 at E(10, 15).

Question 7.

Minimize z = 4x + 2y, Subject to 3x + y ≥ 27, x + y ≥ 21, x + 2y ≥ 30, x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

We get, x = 3, y = 18

∴ G(3, 8)

For H, Solving x + y = 21 …….(i)

x + 2y = 30 ……..(ii)

We get, x = 12, y = 9

∴ G = (12, 9)

∴ Maximum value of z = 48 at G(3, 18)

Question 8.

Formulate and solve the following Linear programming problem using graphical method.

Solution:

Let z be the profit which can be made by selling x chair and y table.

∴ x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

According to the table, the constraints can be written as

3x + 3y ≤ 36

5x + 2y ≤ 50

Subject to 3x + 3y ≤ 36, 5x + 2y ≤ 50, 2x + 6y ≤ 60, x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0.

OEGH is the feasible region

O(0, 0), D(10.4, 0), E(0, 10)

For G, Solving 3x + 3y = 36 ……..(i)

2x + 6y = 60 …….(ii)

∴ G = (3, 9)

For H, Solving 5x + 2y = 52 ………(i)

3x + 3y = 36 ……..(ii)

We get, x = \(\frac{28}{3}\), y = \(\frac{8}{3}\)

∴ H(\(\frac{28}{3}\), \(\frac{8}{3}\))

∴ z in maximum at (3, 9) and maximum profit = ₹ 2310.

Question 9.

A company manufactures bicycles and tricycles, each of which must be processed through two machines A and B Maximum availability of machines A and B are respectively 120 and 180 hours. Manufacturing a bicycle requires 6 hours on machine A and 3 hours on machine B manufacturing a tricycle requires 4 hours on machine A and 10 hours on machine B. If profits are ₹ 180 for a bicycle and ₹ 220 on a tricycle, determine the number of bicycles and tricycles that should be manufactured in order to maximize the profit.

Solution:

Let x number of bicycle and y number of tricycle has to be manufactured and to be sold to get the profit (z)

∴ x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

Total profit = 180x + 220y.

The given LPP can be tabulated as follows:

∴ The given LPP can be formulated as

Maximize z = 180x + 220y

Subject to 6x + 4y ≤ 120, 3x + 10y ≤ 180, x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

OCEB is the feasible region where O(0, 0) C(0, 18) B(20, 0)

E is the point of intersection of 6x + 4y = 120 and 3x + 10y = 180

For E, Solving 6x + 4y = 120 ……..(i)

3x + 10y = 180 …….(ii)

We get, x = 10, y = 15

∴ E(10, 15)

∴ Maximum value of z is 5100 at E(10, 15)

Hence 10 bicycles and 15 tricycles should be produced to get maximum profit.

Question 10.

A factory produced two types of chemicals A and B. The following table gives the units of ingredients P and Q (per kg) of chemicals A and B as well as minimum requirements of P and Q and also cost per kg. Chemicals A and B:

Total cost is 4x + 6y

The LPP is. Minimise z = 4x + 6y

Subject to x + 2y ≥ 80, 3x + y ≥ 75, x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0.

The shaded region BEC in the feasible region B(80, 0) C(0, 75)

and E is the point of intersection of x + 2y = 80 and 3x + y = 75

For E, Solving x + 2y = 80 …….(i)

3x + y = 75 …….(ii)

We get, x = 14, y = 33

∴ E(14, 33)

∴ z is minimum at E(14, 33) and the minimum value of z = 254.

Hence 14 units of chemical A and 33 units of chemical B are produced to get a minimum cost of ₹ 254.

Question 11.

A company produces mixers and food processors. Profit on selling one mixer and one food processor is ₹ 2,000/- and ₹ 3,000/- respectively. Both the products are processed through three Machines A, B, C. The time required in hours by each product and total time available in hours per week on each machine are as follows:

How many mixes and food processors should be produced to maximize profit?

Solution:

Let x be the no. of mixers produced and y be the no.of food processors produced.

The profit is 2000x + 3000y

The LPP is Maximize 2 = 2000x + 3000y

Subject to 3x + 3y ≤ 36, 5x + 2y ≤ 50, 2x + 6y ≤ 60 x, y ≥ 0.

Let 3x + 3y = 36,

i.e. x + y = 12

x = 0, y = 12, (0, 12)

y = 0, x = 12, (12, 0)

5x + 2y = 50

x = 0, y = 25, (0, 25)

y = 0, x = 10, (10, 0)

Let 2x + 6y = 60, x + 3y = 30

x = 0, y = 10 (0, 10)

y = 0, x = 30 (30, 0)

The Shaded region OABCD is the feasible region.

O(0, 0) A (10, 0) D(0, 10)

B is the intersection of x + y = 12 and 5x + 2y = 50

Solving we get x = 8.67, y = 3.33

∴ B(8.67, 3.33)

C is the intersection of x + y = 12 and x + 3y = 30

Solving we get x = 3, y = 9

∴ C(3, 9)

∴ Maximum value of z is 330000 at C(3, 9)

Hence 3 mixers and 9 food processors should be produced to get a maximum profit of ₹ 33,000.

Subject to 4x + 2y ≥ 16, 12x + 2y ≥ 24, 2x + 6y ≥ 18, x, y ≥ 0.

Let 4x + 2 y = 16,

2x + y = 8

x = 0, y = 8, (0, 8)

y = 0, x = 4, (4, 0)

12x + 2y = 24,

6x + y = 12

x = 0, y = 12, (0, 12)

y = 0, x = 2, (2, 0)

2x + 6y = 18

x + 3y = 9

x = 0, y = 3, (0, 3)

y = 0, x = 9, (9, 0)

The Shaded region ABCD is the feasible region.

A(0, 12) D(9, 0)

B is the intersection of 6x + y = 12 and 2x + y = 8

Solving we get x = 1, y = 6

∴ B(1, 6)

C is the intersection of 2x + y = 8 and x + 3y = 9

Solving we get x = 3, y = 2

∴ C(3, 2)

∴ The minimum value of z = 3680 at (3, 2)

Hence 3 unit of compound I and 2 units of compound II should be used to get the minimum cost of ₹ 3680.

Question 13.

A person who makes two types of gift items A and B requires the services of a cutter and a finisher. Gift item A requires 4 hours of the cutter’s time and 2 hours of the finisher’s time.

The profit of one gift item of type A is ₹ 75/- and on gift item B is ₹ 125/-. Assuming that the person can sell all the gift items produced, determine how many gift items of each type should he make every month to obtain the best returns?

Solution:

O(0,0) A (52, 0) C(0, 38)

B is the intersection of 2x + y = 104 and x + 2y = 76

Solving we get x = 44, y = 16

∴ B(44, 16)

∴ Maximum value of z = 5300 at B(44, 16)

Hence he should produce 44 gifts of type A & 16 of type B to get a maximum profit of ₹ 5300.

For E, Solving x + y = 450 ……..(i)

2x + y = 600 ……..(ii)

Solving x = 150, y = 300

∴ E(150, 300)

For E, Solving 3x + 2y = 210 ……….(i)

2x + 4y = 300 …….(ii)

We get x = 30, y = 60

∴ E(30, 60)

∴ Maximum value of z = ₹ 2400 at (30, 60)

Hence 30 units of A and 60 units of B should be manufactured per month to get the maximum profit of ₹ 2400
