Determine the maximum return based on the optimal solution
a) $80 b) $103.33 c) $160 d) $175
3. Determine the INFEASIBLE solution
The production manager for the Cory soft drink company is considering the production of 2 kinds of soft drinks: regular and diet. Two of her limited resources are production time (8 hours = 480 minutes per day) and syrup (1 of her ingredients) 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. Which of the following is not a feasible production combination?
a) 90R and 75D b) 135R and 0D c) 75R and 90D d) 40R and 100D
Linear Programming questions are answered with a graphical and INFEASIBLE solution.
