**Question 9. Maximize Z = 7x + 10y**

**Subject to**

**x + y ≤ 30000**

** y ≤ 12000**

** x ≥ 6000**

** x ≥ y**

** x, y ≥ 0**

**Solution:**

Here we have to maximize Z = 7x + 10y

Convert the given in equations into equations,

After connecting these points we will get the line x + y = 30000.

Thus, (0,0) assure the in equation x + y ≤ 30000.

Thus,

the area having the origin represents the solution set of the in equation x + y ≤ 30000.

The line y = 12000 is the line that passes through C(0,12000) and parallel to x axis.

The line x = 6000 is the line that passes through (6000, 0) and parallel to y axis.

The area shown by x ≥ y

The line x = y is the line that passes through origin.The points to the right of the line x = y assure the inequation x ≥ y.

Like by taking the point (−12000, 6000).

Here, 6000 > −12000 which implies y > x.

Hence,

the points to the left of the line x = y will not assure the given inequation x ≥ y.

The area shown by x ≥ 0 and y ≥ 0:

Hence,

All the point in the first quadrant assure these inequations.

Thus,

the first quadrant is the area shown by the inequations x ≥ 0 and y ≥ 0.

The suitable area determined by the system of constraints, x + y ≤ 30000, y ≤ 12000, x ≥ 6000, x ≥ y , x ≥ 0 and y ≥ 0 are as follows:

The corner points of the feasible region are

D(6000, 0),

A(3000,

F(18000, 12000) and

E(12000, 12000).

The values of Z at these corner points are as follows:

Corner point

Z = 7

x+ 10y

D(6000, 0)7 × 6000 + 10 × 0 = 42000

A(3000, 0)A3000, 0

7× 3000 + 10 × 0 = 21000

F(18000, 12000)

7 × 18000 + 10 × 12000 = 246000

E(12000, 12000)

7 × 12000 + 10 ×12000 = 204000

Here we can see that the maximum value of the objective function Z is 246000 which is at F(18000, 12000) that means at

x = 18000 and y = 12000.

Therefore,

The best value of Z is 246000.

**Question 10. ****Minimize Z = 2x + 4y**

**Subject to**

**x + y ****≥ 8**

**x + 4y ≥ 12**

**x ≥ 3, y ≥ 2**

**Solution:**

Convert the given in equations into equations, we will get the following equations:

x + y = 8, x + 4y = 12, x = 3, y = 2

The area shows by x + y ≥ 8:

The line x + y = 8 connects the coordinate axes at A(8, 0) and B(0, 8) respectively.

After connecting these points we will get the line x + y = 8.

Thus,

(0,0) does not assure the in equation x + y ≥ 8.

Thus,

The region in xy plane which does not contain the origin represents the solution set of the in equation x + y ≥ 8.

The area shown by x + 4y ≥ 12:

The line x + 4y = 12 connects the coordinate axes at C(12, 0) and D(0, 3) respectively.

After connecting these points we will get the line x + 4y = 12.

Thus,

(0,0) assure the in equation x + 4y ≥ 12.

Thus,

the area in xy plane which having the origin represents the solution set of the in equation x + 4y ≥ 12.

The line x = 3 is the line that passes through the point (3, 0) and is parallel to Y axis.x ≥ 3 is the area to the right of the line

x = 3.

The line y = 2 is the line that passes through the point (0, 12) and is parallel to X axis.y ≥ 2 is the area above the line y = 2.

The corner points of the suitable region are E(3, 5) and F(6, 2).

The values of Z at these corner points are as follows.

Corner point Z = 2

x+ 4y

E(3, 5)2 × 3 + 4 × 5 = 26

F(6, 2)2 × 6 + 4 × 2 = 20

Therefore,

The minimum value of Z is 20 at the point F(6, 2).

Hence, x = 6 and y =2 is the best solution of the given LPP.

Therefore,

The best value of Z is 20.
