. Refer to Example 9. How many packets of each food should be used to maximize the amount of vitamin A in the diet? What is the maximum amount of vitamin A in the diet?
Ans. Let and be the number of packets of food P and Q respectively, –
We have to maximize Z = (vitamin A) subject to the constraints (constraints on Calcium), i.e., ……….(i)
And (constraints on Iron), i.e., ……….(ii)
Also (constraints on Cholesterol), i.e., ……….(iii)
……….(iv)
Consider
Let
A | B | C | |
0 | 10 | 20 | |
80 | 40 | 0 |
Here, (0, 0) does not satisfy this inequation, therefore the required half plane does not include the point (0, 0)
Again consider
Let
D | E | F | |
115 | 65 | 0 | |
0 | 10 | 23 |
Here, also (0, 0) does not satisfy this inequation, therefore the required half plane does not include the point (0, 0)
Again consider
Let
Therefore, G (50, 0) and H (0, 75) satisfy the equation.
As (0, 0) satisfies the inequation , therefore the required half plane contains (0, 0)
The shaded region is the feasible solution and its corners are P (15, 20), Q (40, 15) and R (2, 72).
Now Z =
At P(15, 20) Z = 6 x 15 + 3 x 20 = 90 + 60 = 150
At Q (40, 15) Z = 6 x 40 + 3 x 15 = 240 + 45 = 285
At R (2, 72) Z = 6 x 2 + 3 x 72 = 12 + 216 = 228
Hence, maximum Z = 285 units of vitamin A at

2. A farmer mixes two brands P and Q of cattle feed. Brand P, costing Rs. 250 per bag, contains 3 units of nutritional element A, 2.5 units of element B and 2 units of element C. Brand Q costing Rs. 200 per bag contains 1.5 units of nutritional element A, 11.25 units of element B and 3 units of element C. The minimum requirements of nutrients A, B and C are 18 units, 45 units and 24 units respectively. Determine the number of bags of each brand which should be mixed in order to produce a mixture having a minimum cost per bag? What is the minimum cost of the mixture per bag?
Ans. Let number of bags of cattle feed brand P = and number of bags of cattle feed brand Q =
We have to minimize Z = subject to the constraints , , ,

Consider
Let
Now the points are A (6, 0) and B (0, 12).
Now clearly (0, 0) does not lie in the required half plane as (0, 0) does not satisfy the inequation .
Again consider
Let
Now point C (18, 0) and D (0, 4) lie on the line.
Now again (0, 0) does not lie in the required half plane as (0, 0) does not satisfy the inequation .
Again consider
Let
Here, the points E (12, 0) and F (0, 8) lie on the line.
Again also (0, 0) does not lie on the half plane as (0, 0) does not satisfy this inequation.
The feasible region of XCPQEY and the co-ordinates of corners are C (18, 0), P (9, 2), Q (3, 6) and E (0, 12).
Now Z =
At C (18, 0) Z = 250 x 18 + 200 x 0 = 4500
At P (9, 2) Z = 250 x 9 + 200 x 2 = 2450
At Q (3, 6) Z = 250 x 3 + 200 x 6 = 1950
At E (0, 12) Z = 250 x 0 + 200 x 12 = 2400
Here, minimum cost Z = Rs. 1950 when
Hence, number of bags of brand P = 3 and number of bags of brand Q = 6 and minimum cost of the mixture per bag = Rs. = Rs. 216.67 per bag.

3. A dietician wishes to mix together two kinds of food X and Y in such a way that the mixture contains at least 10 units of vitamin A, 12 units of vitamin B and 8 units of vitamin C. The vitamin contents of one kg food is given below:
Food | Vitamin A | Vitamin B | Vitamin C |
X | 1 | 2 | 3 |
Y | 2 | 2 | 1 |
One kg of food X costs Rs. 16 and one kg of food Y costs Rs. 20. Find the least cost of the mixture which will produce the required diet?
Ans. Let in the mixture food X weighs = kg and in the mixture food Y weighs = kg
We have to minimize Z = subject to constraints, , , ,
Consider
Let
Points A (10, 0) and B (0, 5) lies on the line.
Here, (0, 0) does not satisfy the inequation , therefore the required half plane does not include (0, 0).
Again consider
Let
Points C (6, 0) and D (0, 6) lies on the line.
Again consider
Let
Again in the inequation (0, 0) is not included in the required half plane.
The shaded region is our feasible solution A (10, 0), P (2, 4), Q (1, 5), E (0, 8).
E | F | G | |
0 | 100 | 200 | |
140 | 80 | 20 |
The corners of the feasible region are A (10, 0), P (2, 4), Q (1, 5), E (0, 8).
Now Z =
At A (10, 0) Z = 16 x 10 + 20 x 0 = 160
At P (2, 4) Z = 16 x 2 + 20 x 4 = 112
At Q (1, 5) Z = 16 x 1 + 20 x 5 = 116
At E (0, 8) Z = 16 x 0 + 20 x 8 = 160
Therefore minimum Z = Rs. 112 at
Hence, minimum cost of the mixture = Rs. 112 when he mixes 2 kg of food X and 4 kg of food Y.

4. A manufacturer makes two types of toys A and B. Three machines are needed for this purpose and the time (in minutes) requires for each toy on the machines is given below:
Types of Toys | Machines | ||
I | II | III | |
A | 12 | 18 | 6 |
B | 6 | 0 | 9 |
Each machine is available for a maximum of 6 hours per day. If the profit on each type of type A is Rs. 7.50 and that on each toy of type B is Rs. 5, shows that 15 toys of type A and 30 of type B should be manufactures in a day to get maximum profit.
Ans. Let units of toys A and units of toys B are produced by the manufacturer. Time spent on machine I to produce units of toys A and units of toys B = minutes.
Since each machine is available for a maximum of 6 x 60 = 360 minutes.
Therefore, we have
and
now, the profit Z earned by the manufacturer to produce units of type A and units of type B is
we have to maximize Z = i.e., 4Z = subject to constraints , , and
Consider
Let
Points A (30, 0) and B (0, 60) lies on the line. Also (0, 0) lies in the required half plane.
Again consider
Let
It represent the half plane to the left of .
Again consider
Let
Points C (60, 0) and D (0, 40) lies on the line. Therefore, (0, 0) lies in the required half plane.
The shaded portion is our feasible region. Its corners are O (0, 0), P (20, 0), Q (20, 20), R (15, 30), D (0, 40).
Now Z =
At O (0, 0) Z = 7.5 x 0 + 5 x 0 = 0
At P (20, 0) Z = 7.5 x 00 + 5 x 0 = 150
At Q (20, 20) Z = 7.5 x 20 + 5 x 20 = 250
At R (15, 30) Z = 7.5 x 15 + 5 x 30 = 262.50
At D (0, 40) Z = 7.5 x 0 + 5 x 40 = 200
Now maximum profit = Z = Rs. 262.50, when he manufacturers 15 toys of types A and 30 of type B in a day.

We have to maximize = Z = subject to , and
Consider
Let
Points A (200, 0) and B(0, 200) are on the line and therefore (0, 0) is included in the required half plane.
Again consider
Let

Again consider
Let
O | C | D | |
0 | 20 | 40 | |
0 | 80 | 160 |
Here, (40, 0) does not satisfy , therefore plane does not include (40, 0).
The shaded portion is the feasible region. Its corners are C (20, 80), D (40, 160) and P (20, 180)
Now Z =
At C (20, 80) Z = 1000 x 20 + 600 x 80 = 20000 + 48000 = 68,000
At D (40, 60) Z = 1000 x 40 + 600 x 60 = 40000 + 96000 = 1,36,000
At P (20, 180) Z = 1000 x 20 + 600 x 180 = 20000 + 108000 = 1,28,000
Hence Maximum profit Z = Rs. 1,36,000 at

Assuming that the transportation cost of 10 liters of oil is Re. 1 per km, how should the delivery be scheduled in order that the transportation cost is minimum? What is the minimum cost?
Ans. Let liters of oil is supplied from depot A to petrol pump D and liters of oil supplied from depot A to petrol pump E then liters of oil will be supplied from depot A to petrol pump F.
We have and
Since requirements of oil at petrol pump, D, E and F are and liters respectively.
And
And
The cost of transportation per km for 10 liters oil is Re 1
The cost of transportation per km per liter = Rs.

Therefore, the feasible region is ABECD.
Its corners are A (500, 3000), B (35, 0), E (4500, 0), C (4500, 2500), D (4000, 3000).
Now Z =
