Answer Sheet - Homework 1

1.

(1) Formulate the LP model for this problem.

Variable:

X1:Numbers of Dog food to produce,

X2: Numbers of Cat food to produce

Objective: 4X1+5X2 (Max)

Constraint:

Meat: 4X1+5X2≤100

Soybean: 6X1+3X2≤120

Filler: 4X1+10X2≤160

Demand Limit: 0≤X1≤40, 0≤ X2≤30, X1 and X2 must be integers

(2) Solve the problem using the graphical method.

X1 and X2 must be integers,

Optimal solution: (X1=15, X2=8) or ( X1=10, X2=12), Maximal profit is \$100.
