A gardener has a supply of fertilizers of the type 1 which consist of 10% nitrogen and 6% phosphoric acid, and of the type II which consist of 5% nitrogen and 10% phosphoric acid. After testing the soil condition, he finds that he needs at least 14kg of nitrogen and 14 kg of phosphoric acid for his crop. If the type - I fertilizer costs 60 paise per kg and the type - II fertilizer costs 40 paise per kg, determine how many kilograms of each type of fertilizer should be used so that the nutrient requirement are met at a minimum cost. What is the minimum cost?
Let x and y be number of kilograms of fertilizer I and II
∴According to the question,
0.10x + 0.05y , 0.06x + 0.10y
Minimize Z = 0.60x + 0.40y
The feasible region determined by 0.10x + 0.05y , 0.06x + 0.10y is given by
The feasible region is unbounded. The corner points of feasible region are A(0,280) , B(100,80) , C(700/3,0).The value of Z at corner points are
The minimum value of Z is 92 at point (100,80).
Hence, the gardener should by 100 kilograms o fertilizer I and 80 kg of fertilizer II to minimize the cost which is Rs.92.

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’.
