### Question 11. Minimize Z = 5x + 3y

Subject to

2x + y ≥ 10

x + 3y ≥ 15

x ≤ 10

y ≤ 8

x, y ≥ 0

Solution:

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

2x + y = 10, x + 3y = 15, x = 10, y = 8

Area shown by 2x + y ≥ 10:

The line 2x + y = 10 meets the coordinate axes at A(5, 0) and B(0, 10) respectively.

After connecting these points we will get the line 2x + y = 10.

Thus,

(0,0) does not assure the in equation 2x + y ≥ 10.

Thus,

The area in xy plane which does not have the origin represents the solution set of the in equation 2x + y ≥ 10.

The area represented by x + 3y ≥ 15:

The line x + 3y = 15 connects the coordinate axes at C(15, 0) and D(0, 5) respectively.

After connecting these points we will get the line x + 3y = 15.

Thus,

(0,0) assure the in equation x + 3y ≥ 15.

The area in xy plane which does not have the origin represents the solution set of the in equation x + 3y ≥ 15.

The line x = 10 is the line that passes through the point (10, 0) and is parallel to Y axis.x ≤ 10 is the area to the left of the line

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,

The area shows 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 does not have the origin shows the solution set of the in equation x + 4y ≥ 12.

The line 5x + 8y = 20 is the line that passes through E(4, 0) and F .

3x + 4y = 24, 8x + 6y = 48, x = 5 , y = 6, x = 0 and y = 0.

The line 3x + 4y = 24 connects the coordinate axis at A(8, 0) and B(0,6).

Connects these points to get the line 3x + 4y = 24.

Thus,

Thus, the first quadrant is the area shown by the in equations x ≥ 0 and y ≥ 0.

The suitable area determined by the system of constraints x − y ≥ 0,− x + 2y ≥ 2, x ≥ 3, y ≤ 4, x ≥ 0 and y ≥ 0 are as follows. The corner points of the suitable area are C , D(3, 3), E(4, 4) and F(6, 4).
