1) The production quantities for the four maps are 1500, 1000, 1000, 2833.333
respectively. The projected profit is 10166.67. Slacks are: S1 = 0, S2 =3500 S3 =
0, S4 = 500, S5 = 0, S6 = 0, S7 = 1833.33

2) For printing Carla can pay 0.5 for every extra minute, upto a total of 100 extra
minutes. For cutting the amounts are 0 and INF. And for folding, 0.17 and 7000.

3) The value of 900 is within the range for each of minimum-requirement


constraints. For each of maps A and D the shadow price is 0 and hence changing
the minimum quantity has no benefit. For each of maps B and C the shadow price
is -.33. Hence Carla can reduce minimum quantity for any of these two maps,
resulting increase of -.33(-100)=33 in profit.

4) The fifth map should give a profit of at least 2(0.5) + 2 (0) + 3 (.1667) = 1.5.
Requiring 1000 maps of the fifth type will need re-solving the problem, since it
will decrease folding time for the other maps by 3000 minutes, which is greater
than the allowable decrease of 1000.

5) The study will give us some value between 1.75 to 2.25, which lies within the
allowable range for the profit margin for map D (1.5, 3). Hence the solution will
remain the same. (The total profit will lie in the range 10166.67 + 2833.33 (.25) =
(9458.37, 10875.00)). Carla’s decision therefore does not depend on the actual
value of the profit margin on D. Therefore she need not spend $500, unless for
some other reason accurate estimates are required..

2.7)

a. 8 neclaces, no bracelets, 17 rings, and 33 earrings should be stocked.

b. No space is left unused, since the slack for constraint 1 is 0.


120-63=57 minutes of time will be used. (Slack for constraint 2 is 63).
The second marketing restriction will be exactly met, since the slack for
constraint 4 is 0.
c. 7475

d. 87.5 for necklaces and an increase of 162.5-150 = 12.5 for rings.

e. Any amount greater than 0. Since the shadow or dual price for constraint 1
is 75, any change in space within the allowable range changes profit. If the
change in space is outside the range, then again the profit may change.

f. Say no. Although 15 units will keep the total space within the allowable
range (100, 123.75), their value, (15)(75) =1125, is less than the cost,
1500.

2.9)

a. 12 women's, 0 golf, 12 men's, and 60 folding umbrellas should be stock


with a profit of 318.

b. 54-36 = 18 racks are used.

c. 0

d. 1

e. 6.5

f. 48

g. Yes. The shadow price is 1.5 for up to 24 additional units. The value of
the ad (14)(1.5)=21 exceeds the cost, 20.
