j. Let’s assume that Student A and Student B are working in the canning department. Given that they were both hung over on a Monday morning, and called in sick, would you be able to continue to produce mixed fruit and fruit cocktail? (Assume that they each are scheduled to work 8 hours on Monday.) Why?

k. If Student A and Student B worked in the mixing department and pulled this same stunt, would the optimal solution still be to produce mixed fruit, fruit cocktail, and produce no fruit delight? Are you sure? Why?

l. Assume Student A and Student B are being moved the accounting department and are to interpret the sensitivity report for this problem. After looking it over carefully, they conclude that if we increase the profit on fruit cocktail to $7 per lot our profit will increase by $16 ($1 * 16 lots = $16), and our basis will surely remain unchanged because we are still within the range of optimality. They go on to say that if they decrease the profit on fruit cocktail to $5 per lot the total profit will decrease by $16, and our basis will surely remain unchanged, because we are still within the range of optimality. Are they correct?
