Question 9
Cully furniture buys 2 products for resale: big shelves (B) and medium shelves (M). Each big shelf costs $500 and requires 100 cubic feet of storage space, and each medium shelf costs $300 and requires 90 cubic feet of storage space. The company has $75000 to invest in shelves this week, and the warehouse has 18000 cubic feet available for storage. Profit for each big shelf is $300 and for each medium shelf is $150. What is the maximum profit?
Answer
$25000
$35000
$45000
$55000
$65000

2X + Y ? 8
Question 11
The production manager for the Coory soft drink company is considering the production of 2 kinds of soft drinks: regular and diet. Two of her limited resources are production time (8 hours = 480 minutes per day) and syrup (1 of her ingredients) limited to 675 gallons per day. To produce a regular case requires 2 minutes and 5 gallons of syrup, while a diet case needs 4 minutes and 3 gallons of syrup. Profits for regular soft drink are $3.00 per case and profits for diet soft drink are $2.00 per case. For the production combination of 135 cases of regular and 0 cases of diet soft drink, which resources will not be completely used?
Answer
only time
only syrup
time and syrup
neither time nor syrup
Question 12
In a linear programming problem, the binding constraints for the optimal solution are:
5x1 + 3x2 ? 30
2x1 + 5x2 ? 20
Which of these objective functions will lead to the same optimal solution?
Answer
2x1 + 1x2
7x1 + 8x2
80x1 + 60x2
25x1 + 15x2
Question 13
In a linear programming problem, a valid objective function can be represented as
Answer
Max Z = 5xy
Max Z 5x2 + 2y2
Max 3x + 3y + 1/3z
Min (x1 + x2) / x3
Question 14
Cully furniture buys 2 products for resale: big shelves (B) and medium shelves (M). Each big shelf costs $500 and requires 100 cubic feet of storage space, and each medium shelf costs $300 and requires 90 cubic feet of storage space. The company has $75000 to invest in shelves this week, and the warehouse has 18000 cubic feet available for storage. Profit for each big shelf is $300 and for each medium shelf is $150. What is the objective function?
Answer
MAX Z = $300B + $100 M
MAX Z = $300M + $150 B
MAX Z = $300B + $150 M
MAX Z = $300B + $500 M

Question 17
The production manager for the Coory soft drink company is considering the production of 2 kinds of soft drinks: regular (R) and diet(D). Two of the limited resources are production time (8 hours = 480 minutes per day) and syrup limited to 675 gallons per day. To produce a regular case requires 2 minutes and 5 gallons of syrup, while a diet case needs 4 minutes and 3 gallons of syrup. Profits for regular soft drink are $3.00 per case and profits for diet soft drink are $2.00 per case. What is the time constraint?
Answer
2R + 5D ? 480
2D + 4R ? 480
2R + 3D ? 480
2R + 4D ? 480
