A small firm manufactures necklaces and bracelets. The total number of necklaces and bracelets that it can handle per day is at most24. It takes one hour to make a bracelet and half an hour to make a necklace. The maximum number of hours available per day is 16. If the profit on a necklace is ` 100 and that on a bracelet is ` 300. Formulate on L.P.P. for finding how many of each should be produced daily to maximize the profit? It is being given that at least one of each must be produced.
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.

A dietician wishes to mix together two kinds of food X and Y in such a way that the mixture contains at least 10 units of vitamin A, 12 units of vitamin B and 8 units of vitamin C. The vitamin contents of one kg food is given below :
One kg of food X costs ₹16 and one kg of food Y costs ₹ 20. Find the least cost of the mixture which will produce the required diet?RD Sharma - Volume 2
A merchant plans to sell two types of personal computers — a desktop model and a portable model that will cost 25,000 and 40,000 respectively. He estimates that the total monthly demand for computers will not exceed 250 units. Determine the number of units of each type of computers which the merchant should stock to get maximum profit if he does not want to invest more than ` 70 lakhs and his profit on the desktop model is ` 4,500 and on the portable model is 5,000. Make an L.P.P. and solve it graphically.Mathematics - Board Papers
A dietician wishes to mix two types of foods in such a way that the vitamin contents of the mixture contains at least 8 units of vitamin A and 10 units of vitamin C. Food I contains 2 units/kg of vitamin A and 1 units/kg of vitamin C while Food II contains 1unit/kg of vitamin A and 2 units/kg of vitamin C. It costs ₹ 5 per kg to purchase Food I and 7 per kg to purchase Food II. Determine the minimum cost of such a mixture. Formulate the above as a LPP and solve it graphically.Mathematics - Board Papers
