If a young man drives his scooter at a speed of 25 km/hr, he has to spend Rs2 per km on petrol. If he drives the scooter at a speed of 40 km/hour, it produces air pollution and increases his expenditure on petrol to Rs 5 per km. He has a maximum of Rs100 to spend on petrol and travel a maximum distance in one hour time with less pollution. Express this problem as an LPP and solve it graphically. What value do you find here?[CBSE 2013]
Let young man drives x km at a speed of 25 km/hr and y km at a speed of 40 km/hr. Clearly,
x, y 0
It is given that, he spends Rs 2 per km if he drives at a speed of 25 km/hr and Rs 5 per km if he drives at a speed of 40 km/hr. Therefore, money spent by him when he travelled x km and y km are Rs 2x and Rs 5y respectively.
It is given that he has a maximum of Rs 100 to spend.
Thus, 2x + 5y 100
Time spent by him when travelling with a speed of 25 km/hr = hr
Time spent by him when travelling with a speed of 40km/hr = hr
Also, the available time is 1 hour.
Or, 40x + 25y1000
The distance covered is Z = x + y which is to be maximized.
Thus, the mathematical formulation of the given linear programming problem is Max Z = x + y subject to
2x + 5y 100
40x + 25y1000
x, y 0
First we will convert inequations as follows:
2x + 5y = 100
40x + 25y = 1000
x = 0 and y = 0.
The region represented by 2x + 5y 100
The line 2x + 5y = 100 meets the coordinate axes at A(50,0) and B(0,20) respectively. By joining these points, we obtain the line 2x + 5y = 100. Clearly (0, 0) satisfies the 2x + 5y = 100. So, the region which contains the origin represents the solution set of the inequation 2x + 5y 100
The region represented by 40x + 25y 1000
The line 40x + 25y = 1000 meets the coordinate axes at C(25,0) and D(0,40) respectively. By joining these points, we obtain the line 2x + y = 12. Clearly (0, 0) satisfies the 40x + 25y = 1000. So, the region which contains the origin represents the solution set of the inequation 40x + 25y 1000
The region represented by x 0, y 0 :
Since every point in the first quadrant satisfies these inequations. So, the first quadrant is the region represented by the inequations x 0 and y 0.
The feasible region determined by the system of constraints
2x + 5y 100, 40x + 25y1000, x 0 and y 0 are as follows
The corner points are O(0,0), B(0,20), E, and C(25,0). The value of Z at these corner points are as follows:
The maximum value of Z is 30 which is attained at E.
Thus, the maximum distance travelled by the young man is 30 kms, if he drives km at a speed of 25 km/hr and km at a speed of 40 km/hr.

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?
