A clothier makes coats and slacks. The two resources required are wool
cloth and labor. The clothier has 150 square yards of wool and 200
hours of labor available. Each coat requires 3 square yards of wool and
10 hours of labor, whereas each pair of slacks requires 5 square yards of
wool and 4 hours of labor. The profit for a coat is $50, and the profit for
slacks is $40. The clothier wants to determine the number of coats and
pairs of slacks to make so that profit will be maximized. a. Formulate a
linear programming model for this problem. b. Solve this model by
using graphical analysis; you dont need to include the graph in your
report. What is the optimal solution and the optimal objective function
value?

The Crumb and Custard Bakery makes coffee cakes and Danish pastries in
large pans. The main ingredients are flour and sugar. There are 25
pounds of flour and 16 pounds of sugar available, and the demand for
coffee cakes is 5. Five pounds of flour and 2 pounds of sugar are required
to make a pan of coffee cakes, and 5 pounds of flour and 4 pounds of
sugar are required to make a pan of Danish. A pan of coffee cakes has a
profit of $1, and a pan of Danish has a profit of $5. The company wants
to determine the number of pans of cakes and Danish to produce each
day so that profit will be maximized. a. Formulate a linear programming
model for this problem. b. Solve this model by using graphical analysis;

The Pinewood Furniture Company produces chairs and tables from two
resourceslabor and wood. The company has 80 hours of labor and 36
board-ft. of wood available each day. Demand for chairs is limited to 6 per
day. Each chair requires 8 hours of labor and 2 board-ft. of wood, whereas
a table requires 10 hours of labor and 6 board-ft. of wood. The profit
derived from each chair is $400 and from each table, $100. The company
wants to determine the number of chairs and tables to produce each day
in order to maximize profit. a. Formulate a linear programming model for
