If this is a maximization, which extreme point is the optimal solution?

Max Z = \$3x + \$9y

Subject to: 20x + 32y ? 1600

4x + 2y ? 240

y ? 40

x, y ? 0

At the optimal solution, what is the amount of slack associated with the second constraint?

Question 19

2 out of 2 points

Consider the following minimization problem:

Min z = x1 + 2×2

s.t. x1 + x2 ? 300

2×1 + x2 ? 400

2×1 + 5×2 ? 750

x1, x2 ? 0

Find the optimal solution. What is the value of the objective function at the optimal solution? Note: The answer will be an integer. Please give your answer as an integer without any decimal point. For example, 25.0 (twenty five) would be written 25

Question 20

A graphical representation of a linear program is shown below. The shaded area represents the feasible region, and the dashed line in the middle is the slope of the objective function.

What would be the new slope of the objective function if multiple optimal solutions occurred along line segment AB? Write your answer in decimal notation.

Fractional relationships between variables are permitted in the standard form of a linear program.

Question 3

2 out of 2 points

A constraint for a linear programming problem can never have a zero as its right-hand-side value.

Question 4

2 out of 2 points

A systematic approach to model formulation is to first construct the objective function before determining the decision variables.

Question 5

2 out of 2 points

In formulating a typical diet problem using a linear programming model, we would expect most of the constraints to be related to calories.

Question 6

2 out of 2 points

In a balanced transportation model, supply equals demand such that all constraints can be treated as equalities.

Question 7

2 out of 2 points

The following types of constraints are ones that might be found in linear programming formulations:

1.

?

2.

Small motors for garden equipment is produced at 4 manufacturing facilities and needs to be shipped to 3 plants that produce different garden items (lawn mowers, rototillers, leaf blowers). The company wants to minimize the cost of transporting items between the facilities, taking into account the demand at the 3 different plants, and the supply at each manufacturing site. The table below shows the cost to ship one unit between each manufacturing facility and each plant, as well as the demand at each plant and the supply at each manufacturing facility.

What is the demand constraint for plant B?

Question 9

The production manager for the Softy soft drink company is considering the production of 2 kinds of soft drinks: regular and diet. Two of her resources are constraint production time (8 hours = 480 minutes per day) and syrup (1 of her ingredient) limited to 675 gallons per day. To produce a regular case requires 2 minutes and 5 gallons of syrup, while a diet case needs 4 minutes and 3 gallons of syrup. Profits for regular soft drink are \$3.00 per case and profits for diet soft drink are \$2.00 per case. What is the optimal daily profit?
