Unformatted text preview: c Kendra Kilmer September 27, 2011 Section 3.2 • A Linear Programming Problem consists of a linear objective function to be maximized or minimized subject to constraints in the form of linear equations or inequalities. • When setting up a linear programming problem, make sure to precisely define your variables, include your objective (maximize or minimize) and objective function along with all of your constraints. 2. A manufacturer of baby formula makes two types of formula: Type A and Type B. One container of type A requires 30 grams of whey, costs $3 to make, and sells for $25. One container of type B requires 20 grams of whey, costs $3 . 50 to make, and sells for $28. If the manufacturer has 4000 grams of whey available, $500 available to produce the formula, and would like to maximize their revenue, how many containers of each type of formula should they make? (Setup but DO NOT SOLVE the linear programming problem.) 3. A small city is trying to determine the best way to raise funds in a given month. One thing they know for certain is that they want to issue3....
