Find graphically, the maximum value of z = 2x + 5y,
subject to constraints given below:

2x + 4y £ 8

3x + y £ 6

X + y £ 4

X ³ 0, y ³ 0

Solution 26

Converting the inequations into
equations, we obtain the lines

2x + 4y = 8, 3x + y = 6, x + y = 4, x =
0, y = 0.

These lines are drawn on a suitable scale
and the feasible region of the LPP is shaded in the graph.

From the graph we can see the corner
points as (0, 2) and (2, 0).

As region is on origin side it is always bounded. Also, given that x,y 0 it is bounded in the first quadrant.

NOTE: Answer not matching with back answer.

Question 15

The point at which the maximum value of x + y, subject to the constraints x + 2y 70, 2x + y 95, x, y 0 is obtained is

1. (30, 25)
2. (20, 35)
3. (35, 20)
4. (40, 15)

Solution 15

Correct option: (d)

Question 16

The value of objective function is maximum under linear constraints

1. at the centre of feasible region
2. at (0, 0)
3. at any vertex of feasible region
4. the vertex which is maximum distance from (0, 0)

Solution 16

Correct option: (c)

To find maximum or minimum value of the region we use the coordinates of the vertices of feasible region. Hence, the value of objective function is maximum under linear constraints at any vertex of the feasible region.

Note: Answer not matching with back answer.

Question 17

The corner points of the feasible region determined by the following system of linear inequalities:

2x + y 10, x + 3y 15, x, y 0 are (0, 0), (5, 0),

(3, 4) and (0,5). Let Z = p x + q y, where p, q > 0. Condition on p and q so that the maximum of Z occurs at both (3,4) and (0,5) is

1. p = q
2. p = 2q
3. p = 3q
4. q = 3p

Solution 17

Correct option: (d)

Given that Z=px + qy

Maximum value at (3, 4) = maximum value at (0, 5)

3p+4q=5q

q=3p
