A company manufac

Answer :

Let the company manufactures x boxes of type A screws and y boxes of type B screws. We make the following table from the given data:



Thus according to the table, the profit becomes, Z=100x+170y


Now, we have to maximize the profit, i.e., maximize Z=100x+170y


The constraints so obtained, i.e., subject to the constraints,


2x+8y≤ 3600 [time constraints for threading machine]


Now will divide throughout by 2, we get


x+4y≤ 1800…………..(i)


And 3x+2y≤3600 [time constraints for slotting machine]


3x+2y≤3600…………..(ii)


And x≥0, y≥0 [non-negative constraint]


So, to maximize profit we have to maximize Z=100x+170y subject to


x+4y≤ 1800


3x+2y≤3600


x≥0, y≥0
