What is the maximum profit?

Answer

$25000

$35000

$45000

$55000

$65000

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
