Unformatted text preview: Chapter 1 What is Operations Research? 1-1 Set 2.1a Buy three roundtn'p tickets for the ﬁrst three weeks only—«cost = 3X \$400 == \$1200. Though the cost is cheaper, it is not feasible because it covers only three out of the required ﬁve weeks. (l,2)—> (t=2) 2,5,10 Total=2+1+10+2+2=17minutes Given a string of length L: (1) h = .3L, w = .2L, Area = .0st (2) h =.1L, w = .41., Area = .0413 Solution 2 is better because the area is lar er L = 2(w + h) Jim w=L/2—-h Curve Fast Joe Curve .500 .200 z 2 wk = h(L/2 —- h) = 1.1112 — 112 Fast .100 .300 (a) 52/5h = L/2 —— 2h = 0 Alternatives: Joe: Prepare for curve or fast ball. Thus, h = U4 and W = U4. Jim: Throw curve of fast ball. 63) Solution is optimal because 2 is a concave Joe tries to improve his batting score and Jim ﬁanction tries to counter Joe’s action by selecting a less favorable strategy. This means that neither player will be satisﬁed with a single (pure) (a) strategy. Let T = Total tie to move all four individuals to the other side ofthe river. the The problem is not an optimization objective is to determine the transfer schedule situation in the familiar sense in which the that minimizes T. objective is maximized or minimized. Instead, the conﬂicting situation requires a compromise (b) solution in which neither layer is tempted to Let t = crossing time ﬁom one side to the change strategy. Game theory (Chapter 14) other.
