# 0.7 Linear programing: the simplex method: homework

 Page 1 / 2
This chapter covers principles of the simplex method to Linear Programming. After completing this chapter students should be able to: solve linear programming maximization problems using the simplex method and solve the minimization problems using the simplex method.

## Maximization by the simplex method

Solve the following linear programming problems using the simplex method.

Maximize $z={x}_{1}+{2x}_{2}+{3x}_{3}$

subject to $\begin{array}{ccccccc}{x}_{1}& +& {x}_{2}& +& {x}_{3}& \le & \text{12}\\ {2x}_{1}& +& {x}_{2}& +& {3x}_{3}& \le & \text{18}\end{array}$

${x}_{1},{x}_{2},{x}_{3}\ge 0$

${x}_{1}=0$ , ${x}_{2}=9$ , ${x}_{3}=3$ , $z=\text{27}$

Maximize $z={x}_{1}+{2x}_{2}+{x}_{3}$

subject to $\begin{array}{ccccc}{x}_{1}& +& {x}_{2}& \le & 3\\ {x}_{2}& +& {x}_{3}& \le & 4\\ {x}_{1}& +& {x}_{3}& \le & 5\end{array}$

${x}_{1},{x}_{2},{x}_{3}\ge 0$

A farmer has 100 acres of land on which she plans to grow wheat and corn. Each acre of wheat requires 4 hours of labor and $20 of capital, and each acre of corn requires 16 hours of labor and$40 of capital. The farmer has at most 800 hours of labor and $2400 of capital available. If the profit from an acre of wheat is$80 and from an acre of corn is $100, how many acres of each crop should she plant to maximize her profit? Wheat 80 acres, corn 20 acres; Profit$8400

A factory manufactures chairs, tables and bookcases each requiring the use of three operations: Cutting, Assembly, and Finishing. The first operation can be used at most 600 hours; the second at most 500 hours; and the third at most 300 hours. A chair requires 1 hour of cutting, 1 hour of assembly, and 1 hour of finishing; a table needs 1 hour of cutting, 2 hours of assembly, and 1 hour of finishing; and a bookcase requires 3 hours of cutting, 1 hour of assembly, and 1 hour of finishing. If the profit is $20 per unit for a chair,$30 for a table, and $25 for a bookcase, how many units of each should be manufactured to maximize profit? The Acme Apple company sells its Pippin, Macintosh, and Fuji apples in mixes. Box I contains 4 apples of each kind; Box II contains 6 Pippin, 3 Macintosh, and 3 Fuji; and Box III contains no Pippin, 8 Macintosh and 4 Fuji apples. At the end of the season, the company has altogether 2800 Pippin, 2200 Macintosh, and 2300 Fuji apples left. Determine the maximum number of boxes that the company can make. 600 boxes; 400 of Box I, 200 of Box II, and none of Box III ## Minimization by the simplex method In problems 1-2, convert each minimization problem into a maximization problem, the dual, and then solve by the simplex method. Minimize $z={6x}_{1}+{8x}_{2}$ subject to $\begin{array}{ccccc}{2x}_{1}& +& {3x}_{2}& \ge & 7\\ {4x}_{1}& +& {5x}_{2}& \ge & 9\end{array}$ ${x}_{1},{x}_{2}\ge 0$ Initial Simplex Tableau image needed!!!! Minimize $z={5x}_{1}+{6x}_{2}+{7x}_{3}$ subject to $\begin{array}{ccccccc}{3x}_{1}& +& {2x}_{2}& +& {3x}_{3}& \ge & \text{10}\\ {4x}_{1}& +& {3x}_{2}& +& {5x}_{3}& \ge & \text{12}\end{array}$ ${x}_{1},{x}_{2},{x}_{3}\ge 0$ In the next two problems, convert each minimization problem into a maximization problem, the dual, and then solve by the simplex method. Minimize $z={4x}_{1}+{3x}_{2}$ subject to $\begin{array}{ccccc}{x}_{1}& +& {x}_{2}& \ge & \text{10}\\ {3x}_{1}& +& {2x}_{2}& \ge & \text{24}\end{array}$ $x,{x}_{2}\ge 0$ ${x}_{1}=4$ , ${x}_{2}=6$ , $z=\text{34}$ A diet is to contain at least 8 units of vitamins, 9 units of minerals, and 10 calories. Three foods, Food A, Food B, and Food C are to be purchased. Each unit of Food A provides 1 unit of vitamins, 1 unit of minerals, and 2 calories. Each unit of Food B provides 2 units of vitamins, 1 unit of minerals, and 1 calorie. Each unit of Food C provides 2 units of vitamins, 1 unit of minerals, and 2 calories. If Food A costs$3 per unit, Food B costs $2 per unit and Food C costs$3 per unit, how many units of each food should be purchased to keep costs at a minimum?

where we get a research paper on Nano chemistry....?
nanopartical of organic/inorganic / physical chemistry , pdf / thesis / review
Ali
what are the products of Nano chemistry?
There are lots of products of nano chemistry... Like nano coatings.....carbon fiber.. And lots of others..
learn
Even nanotechnology is pretty much all about chemistry... Its the chemistry on quantum or atomic level

no nanotechnology is also a part of physics and maths it requires angle formulas and some pressure regarding concepts

what is variations in raman spectra for nanomaterials
ya I also want to know the raman spectra
Bhagvanji
I only see partial conversation and what's the question here!
what about nanotechnology for water purification
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
Professor
I think
Professor
Nasa has use it in the 60's, copper as water purification in the moon travel.

what is the stm
is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
Damian
How we are making nano material?
what is a peer
What is meant by 'nano scale'?
What is STMs full form?

Mr. Shamir employs two part-time typists, Inna and Jim for his typing needs. Inna charges $10 an hour and can type 6 pages an hour, while Jim charges$12 an hour and can type 8 pages per hour. Each typist must be employed at least 8 hours per week to keep them on the payroll. If Mr. Shamir has at least 208 pages to be typed, how many hours per week should he employ each student to minimize his typing costs, and what will be the total cost?
