Question
12

Steinmetz
furniture buys 2 products for resale: big shelves (B) and
medium
shelves (M). Each big shelf costs \$100 and requires 100 cubic feet
of
storage space, and each medium shelf costs \$50 and requires
80 cubic feet of
storage space. The company has \$25000 to invest
in shelves this week, and the
warehouse has 18000 cubic feet
available for storage. Profit for each big shelf
is \$85 and for
each medium shelf is \$75.In
order to maximize profit, how many
big shelves (B) and how many medium shelves
(M) should be
purchased?

B
= 225, M
= 0

B
= 0, M = 225

B
= 150, M = 75

B
= 75, M = 150

Question
14

For
a maximization problem, assume that a constraint is binding. If
the
original amount of a resource is 4 lbs., and the range of
feasibility
(sensitivity range) for this constraint is from 3
lbs. to 6 lbs., increasing
the amount of this resource by 1 lb.
will result in the:

same
product
mix, different total profit

different
product mix, same total profit as
before

same
product mix, same total profit

different
product mix, different total
