Unformatted text preview: Pro (Rania/J R)“ Hie/Am, blems M— 23 are estimated to be $6 per book. The publisher plans to sell the text to college and univer- sity bookstores for $46 each. a. What is the breakeven point? b. What profit or loss can be anticipated with a demand of 3800 copies? c. With a demand of 3800 copies, what is the minimum price per copy that the publisher must charge to break even? I d. If the publisher believes that the price per copy could be increased to $50.95 and not affect the anticipated demand of 3800 copies, what action would you recommend? What profit or loss can be anticipated? Preliminary plans are under way for the construction of a new stadium for a major league '1 , 16. 17. baseball team. City officials have questioned the number and profitability of the luxury cor— porate boxes planned for the upper deck of the stadium. Corporations and selected individu- als may buy the boxes for $300,000 each. The fixed construction cost for the upper—deck area is estimated to be $4,500,000, with a variabie cost of $150,000 for each box constructed. a. What is the breakeven point for the number of luxury boxes in the new stadium? b. Preliminary drawings for the stadium show that space is available for the construction of up to 50 luxury boxes. Promoters indicate that buyers are available and that all 50 could be sold if constructed. What is your recommendation concerning the construc— tion of luxury boxes? What profit is anticipated? Financial Analysts, Inc., is an investment firm that manages stock portfolios for a number of clients. A new client is requesting that the firm handle an $800,000 portfolio. As an initial investment strategy, the client would like to restrict the portfolio to a mix of the following two stocks: Maximum Price] Estimated Annual Possible Stock Share Return/Share Investment Oil Alaska $50 $6 ‘ $500,000 S outhwest Petroleum $30 $4 $450,000 Let x = number of shares of Oil Alaska y = number of shares of Southwest Petroleum 3. Develop the objective function, assuming that the client desires to maximize the total annual return. b. Show the mathematical] expression‘for each of the following three constraints: (1) Total investment funds available are $800,000. (2) Maximum Oil Alaska investment is $500,000. (3) Maximum Southwest Petroleum investment is $450,000. Note: Adding the x 2 0 and y 2 0 constraints provides a linear programming model for the investment problem. A solution procedure for this model will be discussed in Chapter 2. Models of inventory systems frequently consider the relatioliships among a beginning inventory, a production quantity, a demand or sales, and an ending inventory. For a given production period j, let Sjil = ending inventory from the previous period (beginning inventory for period j) x; = production quantity in period j d,- = demand in period j s; = ending inventory for period j Case problem Scheduling a Golf League 25 Carpentry costs $15 per hour, painting cests $12 per hour, and finishing costs $18 per hour, and the weekly number of hours available in the processes is 3000 in carpentry, 1500 in painting, and 1500 in finishing. Brooklyn also has a contract that requires the company to supply one of its customers with 500 contemporary cabinets and 650 farmhouse style cabinets each week. ' . Let x = the number of contemporary style cabinets produced each week y = the number of farmhouse style cabindts produced each week a. Develop the objective function, assuming that Brooklyn Cabinets wants to maximize the total weekly profit. [1. Show the mathematical expression for each of the constraints on the three processes. c. Show the mathematical expression for each of Brooklyn Cabinets’ contractual agreements. . i. = PromoTime, a local advertising agency, has been hired to promote the new adventure -- ‘ ’ film Tomb Raiders starring Angie Harrison and Joe Lee Ford. The agency has been given a $100,000 budget to spend on advertising for the movie in the week prior to its release, and the movie‘s producers have dictated that only local television ads and locally tar— geted Internet ads will be used. Each television ad costs $500 and reaches an estimated i 7000 people, and each Internet ad costs $250 and reaches an estimated 4000 people. The movie's producers have also dictated that, in order to avoid saturation, no more than 20 television ads will be placed. The producers have also stipulated that, in order to reach ' a critical mass, at least 50 Internet ads will be placed. Finally, the producers want at least one—third of all ads to be placed on television. Let IO :11 .st 1e or x = the number of television ads purchased y = the number of Internet ads purchased a. Develop the. objective function, assuming that the movie’s producers want to reach the maximum number of people possible. b. Show the mathematical expression for the budget constraint. c. Show the mathematical expression for the maximum number of 20 television ads to be used. ’ d. Show the mathematical expression for the minimum number of Internet ads to be _ used. , e. Show the mathematical expression for the stipulated ratio of television ads to Internet ads. - f. Carefully review the constraints you created in part (b), part (c), and part (d). Doe-s any aspect of these constraints concern you? If so, why? tal iti- 1n- :ell 1gb Ich Case Problem SCHEDULING A GOLF LEAGUE Chris Lane, the head professional at Royal Oak Country Club, must develop a schedule of matches for the couples’ golf league that begins its season at 4:00 P.M. tomorrow. Eighteen couples signed up for the league, and each couple must play every other couple over the course of the 17-W63k season. Chris thought it would be fairly easy to develop a schedule, but after working on it for. a couple of hours, he has been unable to come up with a schedule. Because Chris must have a schedule ready by tomorrow afternoon, he asked you to help him. A possible complication is that one of the couples told Chris that they may have to cancel for the season. They told Chris they will let him know by 1:00 P.M. tomorrow whether they will be able to play this season. i-l I‘; I Problems 7i . 18.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
