# One kind of cake requires 200g of flour and 25g of fat, and another kind of cake requires 100g of flour and 50g of fat. Find the maximum number of cakes which can be made from 5kg of flour and 1 kg of fat assuming that there is no shortage of the other ingredients used in making the cakes. **[CBSE 2014, 2015]**

**[CBSE 2014, 2015]**

Answer :

let there be x cakes of first kind and y cakes of second kind.

∴ x≥ 0 and y ≥ 0.

The information given in the question can be complied in given form

200x + 100y ≤ 5000 ⇒ 2x+ y ≤ 50

& 25x + 50y ≤ 1000 ⇒ x +2y ≤ 40

Let Z be the total number of cakes that can be made

⇒ Z =X=y

Mathematical formulation of the given problem is

Maximize Z =x+y

Subject to constraint 2x+ y ≤ 50 and x +2y ≤ 40 where x, y ≥ 0

The graphical representation shows the feasible region determined by the system of constraints.

The corner points A(25, 0) , B( 20,10), 0(0,0) and C(0,20)

The values of z at these corner points are as follows

Thus, the maximum number of cakes that can be made are 30 (20 of one kind and 10 of other kind)

PREVIOUSA cottage industry manufactures pedestal lamps and wooden shades, each requiring the use of a grinding/cutting machine and a sprayer. It takes 2 hours on grinding/cutting machine and 3 hours on the sprayer to manufacture a pedestal lamp. It takes 1 hour on the grinding/cutting machine and 2 hours on the sprayer to manufacture a shade. On any day, the sprayer is available for at the most 20 hours and the grinding/cutting machine for at the most 12 hours. The profit from the sale of a lamp is Rs 5 and that from a shade is Rs 3. Assuming that the manufacturer can sell all the lamps and shades that he produces, how should he schedule his daily production in order to maximise his profit?[CBSE 2014]NEXTFind graphically, the maximum value of z = 2x + 5y, subject to constraints given below:2x + 4y ≤ 83x + y ≤ 6x + y ≤ 4x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0 [CBSE 2015]
