Let number of necklaces manufactured be x and y be the number of bracelets manufactured.
As the total number of items are at most 24;
∴ x + y ≤ 24 ……(i)
Necklaces takes half an hour and Bracelets takes 1 hour to manufacture.
⇒ x items take x/2 hours and y items take y hours to manufacture and the total time available is 16 hours.
∴ x + 2y ≤ 32 ……(ii)
The profit of one necklace is Rs. 100 and that of bracelet is Rs. 300.
Let the profit be Z
∴ Z = 100x + 300y ……(iii)
Equations (i), (ii) and (iii) forms the LPP.
(0,0),(0,16),(16,8) and (24,0) are the boundary points.
At (0,0) Z = 0
At (0,16) Z = 4800
At (16,8) Z = 4000
At (24,0) Z = 2400
Since at least one of each should be produced;
16 necklaces and 8 bracelets should be produced daily for maximum profit.
