The profit, c 1, for a basketball that would change the solution point is, – 4/5 = – c 1/16 5 c 1 = 64 c 1 = 12.8 Since $13 > 12.8 the solution point would change to B where x 1 = 128.5, x 2 = 57.2.

Unformatted text preview: For a football, 4/5 = 12/ c 2 4 c 2 = 60 c 2 = 15 Thus, if the profit for a football decreased to $15 or less, point B will also be optimal. The solution at B is x 1 = 128.5, x 2 = 57.2, and Z = $2,400. (c) If the constraint line for rubber changes to 3 x 1 + 2 x 2 = 1,000, it moves outward, eliminating points B and C . However, since A is the optimal point, it will not change and the optimal solution remains the same, x 1 = 0, x 2 = 160, and Z = 2,560. There will be an increase in slack, s 1, to 680 lbs. If the constraint line for leather changes to 4 x 1 + 5 x 2 = 1,300, point A will move to a new location, x 1 = 0, x 2 = 250, Z = $4,000....
