Question 13

(a) A firm manufactures two types of products, A and B, and sells them at
a profit of `5 per unit of type A and `3 per unit of type B. Each product
is processed on two machines, M1 and M2. One unit of type A requires
one minute of processing time on M1 and two minutes of processing
time on M2, whereas one unit of type B requires one minute of
processing time on M1 and one minute on M2.Machines M1 and M2
are respectively available for at most 5 hours and 6 hours in a day.

produce a day in order to maximize the profit. Solve the problem
graphically.

the first being made at the end of 3 years. If money is worth 10% p.a.
compounded half yearly find the cash price. [5]

Question 14

## (a) A bill for ` 5050 is drawn on April 13. It is discounted on July 4 at 5%

p.a. If the bankers gain in the transaction is `0.50, find the nominal
date of maturity of the bill. [5]

(b) A firm knows that the demand function for one of its products is linear.
It also knows that it can sell 1000 units when the price is ` 4 per unit,
and it can sell 1500 units when the price is ` 2 per unit.
Determine: (i) the demand function,
(ii) the total revenue,
(iii) The marginal revenue function. [5]
Question 15

(a) With price index of 2001 as 100, the cost of living index for 2006 is 160 and
2007 is 192. The salary of an employee increased from ` 20,000 in 2006 to
` 2100 in 2007. Find whether the real income in 2007 has increased or
decreased as compared to 2006. Also calculate if any extra dearness
allowance should be paid to him to compensate for loss. Also calculate
purchasing power of rupee in 2006 and 2007.
