    39. Max Z = $0.30x + $0.90y
    Subject to : 2x + 3.2y <= 160
    4x + 2y <= 240
    y <= 40
    x, y >= 0.

    Solve for the quantities of x and y which will maximize Z. What is the value of the slack variable associated with constraint 2?

    45. Consider the following transportation problem:
    1 2 Supply
    1 5 6 100
    2 4 2 200
    3 3 6 150
    4 9 7 50
    Demand 250 250

    What is the objective function?
