3. Our company produces two products, product X and product Y, using three inputs: labor, raw material A, and raw material B. One unit of product X requires 8 hours of labor, 5 pounds of A, and 7.5 pounds of B. One unit of product Y requires 6 hours of labor, 10 pounds of A, and 4.5 pounds of B. The demand of each product is so large that the company can sell as many as it can produce. The firm earns a profit of \$3 per unit of X and \$4 per unit of Y. However, only 1200 labor hours, 900 pounds of A, and 675 pounds of B are available to the firm each day. You formulated the problem as a linear program. Decision variables: x: #units of product X we produce y: #units of product Y we produce Maximize 3x + 4y Objective: maximize the profit function Subject to: 8x + 6y ≤ 1200 Labor hours constraint 5x + 10y ≤ 900 Raw Material A constraint 7.5x + 4.5y ≤ 675 Raw Material B constraint x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0 Non-negativity constraints The optimal decision variables turned out: x = 51.4285 and y = 64.2857. The sensitivity report created by Excel Solver is as follows.

### What students are saying

• 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.
