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?
