You are on page 1of 3

In this project your group will solve the following problem:

A manufacturer produces the following two items: computer desks and bookcases. Each item requires

processing in each of two departments. Department A has 55 hours available and department B has 39

hours available each week for production. To manufacture a computer desk requires 4 hours in

department A and 3 hours in department B while a bookcase requires 3 hours in department A and 2

hours in department B. Profits on the items are $72 and $23 respectively. If all the units can be sold,

how many of each should be made to maximize profits?

Let X be the number of computer desks that are sold and Y be number of bookcases sold.

1.

4X + 3y < 55

3x + 2y < 39

There are two other linear inequalities that must be met. These relate to the fact that the manufacturer

cannot produce negative numbers of items. These inequalities are as follows:

X 0

Y 0

3. Next, write down the profit function for the sale of X desks and Y bookcases:

P 72x + 23y

You now have four linear inequalities and a profit function. These together describe the manufacturing

situation. These together make up what is known mathematically as a linear programming problem.

Write all of the inequalities and the profit function together below. This is typically written one on top

of another, with the profit function last.

4. To solve this problem, you will need to graph the intersection of all four inequalities on one

common XY plane. Do this on the grid below. Have the bottom left be the origin, with the

horizontal axis representing X and the vertical axis representing Y.

5. The above shape should have 4 corners. Find the coordinates of the ordered pairs that make up

these corners. For the intersection of the two slanted lines you will have to solve the 2 by 2

system made up of their equations.

(0, 0)

(13, 0)

(7, 9)

(0, 18.33)

Multiply 3x + 2y < 39 by 4

and 4X + 3y < 55 by 3 and then

subtract 3x + 2y < 39 from 4X + 3y < 55 as:

Y = 55*3 39*4 = 165 156 = 9

Y=9

Next from 3x + 2y < 39 , 3X + 2*9 = 39

3X = 39 18 = 21

X=7

Point of intersection are (7, 9).

6. The next thing to do is to plug each of the points you found in part 5 into the profit function to

determine which ordered pair gives the maximum profit. Do this and write a sentence

describing how many of each type of furniture you should build and sell and what is the

maximum profit you will make.

P = 72X + 23Y

P(0, 0) = 72(0) + 23(0) = 0

P(0, 18.33) = 72(0) + 23(18.33) = 421.59

P(13, 0) = 72(13) + 23(0) = 936

P(7, 9) = 72(7) + 23(9 )= 711

By selling 13 Computer Desks and 0 bookcases the company should have a maximum profit of

$936.00

7. Reflective Writing.

Did this project change the way you think about how math can be applied to the real world?

Write one paragraph stating what ideas changed and why. If this project did not change the way

you think, write how this project gave further evidence to support your existing opinion about

applying math. Be specific.

This project made me use my math skills that I have learn during this course, and made me

related that this is kind of math that we used out there in real life. I started with my own at the

beginning, but sometimes is hard for me to translate these kind of history problems, so it was really

beneficial to work in a team, where more mind are great beneficial to solve this project and we were

able to translate it together. Sharing opinions with my classmate, it is a direct correlation assignment

that let us to experience what is the real world.
