A firm manufactures two types of products, A and B, and sells them at a profit of ₹2 on type A and ₹2 on type B. Each product is processed on two machines, M1 and M2. Type A requires one minute of processing time on M1 and two minutes on M2. Type B requires one minute on M1 and one minute on M2 is available for not more than 6 hours 40 minutes while M2 is available for at most 10 hours a day.
Find how many products of each type the firm should produce each day in order to get maximum profit.
Let the firm manufacture x number of Aand y number of B products.
∴According to the question,
X + y
Maximize Z = 2x + 2y
The feasible region determined by X + y is given by
The corner points of feasible region are A(0,0) , B(0,400) , C(200,200) , D(300,0).The value of Z at corner point is
The maximum value of Z is 800 and occurs at two points. Hence the line BC is a feasible solution.
The firm should produce 200 number of Aproducts and 200 number of B products.

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?
