Question 1 (20 points)The ABC Corporation makes two products with brand names ‘Swift’ and ‘Impala’. The netcontribution from each product is Rs. 1 and Rs. 2, respectively, measured in lakhs. There arethree workshops that are used to make these products. The first one called Tuning (T) has 50hours a week available. Each Swift requires 1 hour and each Impala 3 hours in the Tuningworkshop. The second workshop is called Finisher (F) and has 40 hours available. Each productrequires one hour in this workshop. The third workshop is Assembly (A) and has 120 hoursavailable. Swift requires 3 hours and Impala 2 hours in the Assembly workshop.(a)Formulate the above problem as a linear program to determine the number of Swift andImpala products to be manufactured to maximize profit.(3 points)(b)Solve this problem graphically. Show the optimal variable values as well as the optimumobjective function value on the graph.(3 points)(c)Write the dual to your LP formulation from part (a). Using the dual formulation, determinethe shadow prices of the constraints in the primal problem?(6 points)(d)What change do you expect if the T and A workshop hours aresimultaneouslyincreased by10 hours each?(1 point)(e)Notice that the net profit of the Swift model is half of that of the Impala model.
