Solution

## The correct option is A 177000Let x and y denote, respectively, the number of black and white sets and coloured sets made each week. Thus x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0 Since the company can make at most 350 sets a week, therefore, x + y ≤ 350 Weekly cost (in Rs) of manufacturing the set is 1800x + 2700y and the company can spend up to Rs. 648000. Therefore, 1800x + 2700y ≤ 648000, i.e., or 2x + 3y ≤ 720 The total profit on x black and white sets and y colour sets is Rs (500x + 600y). Let Z = 500x + 600y . This is the objective function. Corner Point Z = 500x+600y (0, 240) 144000 (330, 20) 177000 (350, 0) 175000 Thus, maximum Z is 177000 at the point (330, 20), hence company should produce 330 black and white television sets and 20 coloured television sets to get maximum profit.
