A manufacturer produces two type of steel trunks. He has two machines A and B. For completing, the first types of the trunk requires 3 hours on machine A and 3 hours on machine B, whereas the second type of the trunk requires 3 hours on machine A and 2 hours on machine B . Machines A and B can work at most for 18 hours and 15 hours per day respectively. He earns a profit of Rs 30 and Rs 25 per trunk of the first type and the second type respectively. How many trunks of each type must
he make each day to make maximum profit?
Let x trunks of first type and y trunks of second type were manufactured. Number of trunks cannot be negative.
Therefore, x, y 0
According to the question, the given information can be tabulated as
Therefore, the constraints are,
3x + 3y 18
3x + 2y 15.
He earns a profit of Rs 30 and Rs 25 per trunk of the first type and the second type respectively. Therefore, profit gained by him from x trunks of first type and y trunks of second type is Rs 30x and Rs 25y respectively.
Total profit Z = 30x + 25y which is to be maximized.
Thus, the mathematical formulation of the given LPP is
Max Z = 30x + 25y
3x + 3y 18
3x + 2y 15
x, y 0
Region 3x + 3y 18: line 3x + 3y = 18 meets axes at A(6,0), B(0,6) respectively. Region containing origin represents the solution of the inequation 3x + 3y 18 as (0,0) satisfies 3x + 3y 18.
Region 3x + 2y 15: line 3x + 2y = 15 meets axes at C(5,0), D(0,) respectively. Region containing origin represents the solution of the inequation 3x + 2y 15 as (0,0) satisfies 3x + 2y 15.
Region x,y 0: it represents first quadrant.
The corner points are O(0,0), B(0,6), E(3,3), and C(5,0).
The values of Z at these corner points are as follows:
The maximum value of Z is 165 which is attained at E(3,3).
Thus, the maximum profit is of Rs 165 obtained when 3 units of each type of trunk is manufactured.

A manufacturer produces two products A and B. Both the products are processed on two different machines. The available capacity of the first machine is 12 hours and that of the second machine is 9 hours per day. Each unit of product A requires 3 hours on both machines, and each unit of product B requires 2 hours on the first machine and 1 hour on the second machine. Each unit of product A is sold at ` 7 profit and that of B at a profit of ` 4. Find the production level per day for maximum profit graphically.Mathematics - Board Papers
A retired person wants to invest an amount of ₹ 50,000. His broker recommends investing in two types of bonds ‘A’ and ‘B’ yielding 10% and 9% return respectively on the invested amount. He decides to invest at least ₹ 20,000 in bond ‘A’ and at least ₹ 10,000 in bond ‘B’. He also wants to invest at least as much in bond ‘A’ as in bond ‘B’. Solve this linear programming problem graphically to maximize his returns.Mathematics - Board Papers
A manufacturing company makes two types of teaching aids A and B of Mathematics for class XII. Each type of A requires 9 labour hours of fabricating and 1 labour hour for finishing. Each type of B requires 12 labour hours for fabricating and 3 labour hours for finishing. For fabricating and finishing, the maximum labour hours available per week are 180 and 30 respectively. The company makes a profit of Rs80 on each piece of type A, and Rs120 on each piece of type B. How many pieces of type A and type B should be manufactured per week to get a maximum profit? Make it as an LPP and solve graphically. What is the maximum profit per week?Mathematics - Board Papers
