EXERCISE 30.3

**Q1. **

**Solution:**

Let us consider x and y be number of 25gms of food packets, F_{1} and F_{2}

Minimum cost of diet Z = 0.20x + 0.15y

Therefore the constraints are:

0.25x + 0.1y â‰¥ 1; when x = 0, y = 10 and y = 0, x = 4 10-4

0.75x + 1.5y â‰¥ 7.5; when x = 0, y = 5 and y = 0, x = 10 A-10

1.6x + 0.8y â‰¥ 10; when x = 0, y = 25/2 and y = 0, x = 25/4

The feasible region is the open region B-E-10

The minimum cost of the diet can be checked by finding the value of Z at corner points B, E and 10.

Corner points |
Value of Z = 20x + 15y |

0, 12.5 |
187.5 |

10, 0 |
200 |

5, 2.5 |
137.5 |

Since the feasible region is an open region so we plot 20x + 15y < 137.5, to check whether the resulting open half plane has any point common with the feasible region.

Since it has common points Z = 20x + 15y

Hence there is no optimal minimum value subject to the given constraints.

**Q2.**

**Solution:**

Let us consider the required quantity of food A and B be x and y units.

Given:

Costs of one unit of food A and B are Rs 4 and Rs 3 per unit.

So, cost of x unit of food A and y unit of food B = 4x and 3y.

Let Z be minimum total cost,

So, Z = 4x + 3y

First Constraint:

One unit of food A and B contain = 200 and 100 units of vitamins

So, x units of food A and y units of food B contain = 200x and 100y units of vitamins

Minimum requirement of vitamin = 4000 units

So,

200x + 100y â‰¥ 4000

2x + y â‰¥ 40

Second constraint:

One unit of food A and B contain = 1 and 2 units of minerals

So, x units of food A and y units of food B contain = x and 2y units of minerals

Minimum requirement of minerals = 50 units

So,

x + 2y â‰¥ 50

Third constraint:

One unit of food A and B contain = 40 calories each

So, x units of food A and y units of food B contain = 40x and 40y units of calories

Minimum requirement of calories = 1400 units

So,

40x + 40y â‰¥ 1400

2x + 2y â‰¥ 70

x + y â‰¥ 35

Hence, the required mathematical formulation of linear programming is:

Minimize Z = 4x + 3y

Subject to constraints

2x + y â‰¥ 40

x + 2y â‰¥ 50

x + y â‰¥ 35

Where, x, y â‰¥ 0

Now, region 2x + y â‰¥ 40:

The line 2x + y = 40 meets axes at A_{1}(20, 0), B_{1}(0, 40) region not containing origin represents 2x + y â‰¥ 40 as (0, 0) does not satisfy 2x + y â‰¥ 40.

Region x + 2y â‰¥ 50:

The line x + 2y = 50 meets axes at A_{2}(50, 0), B_{2}(0, 25) region not containing origin represents x + 2y â‰¥ 50 as (0, 0) does not satisfy x + 2y â‰¥ 50.

Region x + y â‰¥ 35:

The line x + y = 35 meets axes at A_{3}(35, 0), B_{3}(0, 35) region not containing origin represents x + y â‰¥ 35 as (0, 0) does not satisfy x + y â‰¥ 35.

Region x, y â‰¥ 0: it represents first quadrant in xy-plane.

Unbounded shaded region A_{2} P Q B_{1} represents feasible region with corner points A_{2}(50, 0), P(20,15), Q(5, 30), B_{1}(0, 40)

The value of Z = 4x + 3y at

A_{2}(50, 0) = 4(50) + 3(0) = 2000

P(20, 15) = 4(20) + 3(15) = 125

Q(5, 30) = 4(5) + 3(30) = 110

B_{1}(0, 40) = 4(0) + 3(40) = 110

Hence, smallest value of Z = 110

Open half plane 4x + 3y < 110 has no point in common with feasible region

So, smallest value is the minimum value.

Quantity of food A = x = 5 units

Quantity of food B = y = 30 units

Minimum cost = Rs 110

**Q3.**

**Solution:**

Let us consider x and y be units of food, F I and F II

The objective function is to minimize the function Z = 0.6x + y

Where,

10x + 4y â‰¥ 20; requirement of calcium, line 5-2

5x + 6y â‰¥ 20; requirement of protein, line A-4

2x + 6y â‰¥ 12; requirement of calories, line 2-6

The feasible region is the open unbounded region 5-F-E-6

The function 20x + 15y < 57.5 needs to be plotted to check if there are any common points. The green line shows that there are no common points.

So,

Corner points |
Value of Z = 0.6x + y |

0, 5 |
5 |

F(1, 2.5) |
3.1 |

E(2.67, 1.11) |
2.71 |

6, 0 |
3.6 |

The minimum cost occurs when Food I is 1 unit and Food II is 2.5 units.

Since it is an unbounded region plotting Z < 3.1 gives the green line which has no common points.

So, (1, 2.5) is aid to be a minimum point.

**Q4.**

**Solution:**

Let us consider the required quantity of food A and B be x and y units.

Given:

Costs of one unit of food A and B are 10paise per unit.

So, cost of x unit of food A and y unit of food B = 10x and 10y.

Let Z be minimum total cost,

So, Z = 10x + 10y

First Constraint:

One unit of food A and B contain = 0.12mg and 0.10mg of Thiamin

So, x units of food A and y units of food B contain = 0.12x and 0.10y mg of Thiamin

Minimum requirement of Thiamin = 0.5mg

So,

0.12x + 0.10y â‰¥ 0.5

12x + 10y â‰¥ 50

6x + 5y â‰¥ 25

Second constraint:

One unit of food A and B contain = 100 and 150 calories

So, x units of food A and y units of food B contain = 100x and 150y units of calories

Minimum requirement of calories = 600 units

So,

100x + 150y â‰¥ 600

2x + 3y â‰¥ 12

Hence, the required mathematical formulation of linear programming is:

Minimize Z = 10x + 10y

Subject to constraints

6x + 5y â‰¥ 25

2x + 3y â‰¥ 12

Where, x, y â‰¥ 0

Now, region 6x + 5y â‰¥ 25:

The line 6x + 5y = 25 meets axes at A_{1}(25/6, 0), B_{1}(0, 5) region not containing origin represents 6x + 5y â‰¥ 25 as (0, 0) does not satisfy 6x + 5y â‰¥ 25.

Region 2x + 3y â‰¥ 12:

The line 2x + 3y = 12 meets axes at A_{2}(6, 0), B_{2}(0, 4) region not containing origin represents 2x + 3y â‰¥ 12 as (0, 0) does not satisfy 2x + 3y â‰¥ 12.

Region x, y â‰¥ 0: it represents first quadrant in xy-plane.

Unbounded shaded region A_{2} P B_{1} represents feasible region with corner points A_{2}(6, 0), P(15/8,11/4), B_{1}(0, 5)

The value of Z = 10x + 10y at

A_{2}(6, 0) = 10(6) + 10(0) = 60

P(15/8, 11/4) = 10(15/8) + 10(11/4) = 370/8 = 46 Â¼

B_{1}(0, 5) = 10(0) + 10(5) = 50

Hence, smallest value of Z = 46 Â¼

Open half plane 10x + 10y < 370/8 has no point in common with feasible region

So, smallest value is the minimum value.

Required quantity of food A = x = 15/8 units

Required quantity of food B = y = 11/4 units

Minimum cost = Rs 46. 25

**Q5.**

**Solution:**

Let us consider the required quantity of food A and B be x and y kg.

Given:

Costs of one kg of food A and B are Rs 5 and Rs 8 kg.

So, cost of x kg of food A and y kg of food B = 5x and 8y.

Let Z be minimum total cost,

So, Z = 5x + 8y

First Constraint:

One kg of food A and B contain = 1 and 2 units of vitamin A

So, x kg of food A and y kg of food B contain = x and 2y kg of vitamin A

Minimum requirement of vitamin A = 6 units

So,

x + 2y â‰¥ 6

Second constraint:

One kg of food A and B contain = 1 unit of Vitamin B each

So, x kg of food A and y kg of food B contain = x and y units of vitamin B

Minimum requirement of vitamin B = 7 units

So,

x + y â‰¥ 7

Third constraint:

One kg of food A and B contain = 1 and 3 units of vitamin C

So, x kg of food A and y kg of food B contain = x and 3y units of vitamin C

Minimum requirement of vitamin C = 11 units

So,

x + 3y â‰¥ 11

Fourth constraint:

One kg of food A and B contain = 2 and 1 units of vitamin D

So, x kg of food A and y kg of food B contain = 2x and y units of vitamin D

Minimum requirement of vitamin D = 9 units

So,

2x + y â‰¥ 9

Hence, the required mathematical formulation of linear programming is:

Minimize Z = 5x + 8y

Subject to constraints

x + 2y â‰¥ 6

x + y â‰¥ 7

x + 3y â‰¥ 11

2x + y â‰¥ 9

Where, x, y â‰¥ 0

Now, region x + 2y â‰¥ 6:

The line x + 2y = 6 meets axes at A_{1}(6, 0), B_{1}(0, 3) region not containing origin represents x + 2y â‰¥ 6 as (0, 0) does not satisfy x + 2y â‰¥ 6.

Region x + y â‰¥ 7:

The line x + y = 7 meets axes at A_{2}(7, 0), B_{2}(0, 7) region not containing origin represents x + y â‰¥ 7 as (0, 0) does not satisfy x + y â‰¥ 7.

Region x + 3y â‰¥ 11:

The line x + 3y â‰¥ 11 meets axes at A_{3}(11, 0), B_{3}(0, 11/3) region not containing origin represents x + 3y â‰¥ 11 as (0, 0) does not satisfy x + 3y â‰¥ 11.

Region 2x + y â‰¥ 9:

The line 2x + y = 9 meets axes at A_{4}(9/2, 0), B_{4}(0, 9) region not containing origin represents 2x + y â‰¥ 9 as (0, 0) does not satisfy 2x + y â‰¥ 9.

Region x, y â‰¥ 0: it represents first quadrant in xy-plane.

Unbounded shaded region A_{2} P Q B_{4} represents feasible region with corner points A_{3}(11, 0), P(5, 2), Q(2, 5), B_{4}(0, 9)

The value of Z = 5x + 8y at

A_{3}(11, 0) = 5(11) + 8(0) = 55

P(5, 2) = 5(5) + 8(2) = 41

Q(2, 5) = 5(2) + 8(5) = 50

B_{4}(0, 9) = 5(0) + 8(9) = 72

Hence, smallest value of Z = 41

Open half plane 5x + 8y < 41 has no point in common with feasible region

So, smallest value is the minimum value.

Last cost of mixture = Rs 41
