Part I: Modeling Questions (20 points) a. (15 points) Petra Purdue wants to train for a triathlon as a way to get in shape and lose weight. She has set as a goal to complete the Muncie Olympic Triathlon on June 11 th . In this she would have to swim 1 mile, bike 24.9 miles, and run 6.2 miles. She can swim a mile in 30 minutes, bike 15 miles in an hour, and run 6 miles in an hour. She calculates that she will burn 300 calories for each mile she swims. Each mile she bikes will burn 31 calories. Each mile she runs will burn 50 calories. She has set these goals for her training: Exercise a maximum of 6 hours per week. Complete at a minimum each of the distances in the triathlon each week (1 mile of swimming, 24.9 miles of biking, and 6.2 miles of running.) Cover a total distance of at least 40 miles each week. Formulate a linear program how many hours Petra has to spend at each activity each week to maximize her calories burned. Do not solve. Decision Variables: Objective Function: Constraints: 3
