maximize Z = 30x+50y
subject to
2x+4y=100 and x+5y=80

  • Algebra -

    I assume you are supposed to do a graphical solution.
    first, change each constraint equation to slope/inercept form.

    y=-1/2 x+25 and
    y=-1/5 x + 16

    Now, on an x/y graph, plot those lines. Now what is neat about this solution, the max or min is always at an intersection.

    Here, if you assume x>0, and y>0, then you have 4 corners (intersections).
    0,0
    16,0
    0,25 and finally where the lines cross at 30,10

    check all those points, I did them in my head.

    Then, take your objective function Z, and calculate the value at each of these corners: One will be the max solution.

    Now to make a genius of yourself, try a point x,y inside the area, and somewhere along any line, just to prove to yourself the maximum and minimum will always be on a corner.
