A market survey signifies that every day demand for interior paint cannot surpass that for exterior paint by more than 1 ton. Also maximum routine demand for interior paint is 2 tons. Develop LPP to find out the top product mix of interior and exterior paints that maximizes the daily total gain (profit).

Answer

Assume

 x1 - number of units of exterior paint

      x2 - number of units of interior paint

 

Maximize Z = 5x1 + 4x2         

Subject to

6x1 + 4x2 ≤ 24

x1 + 2x2 ≤ 6

x2 - x1≤ 1

x2≤ 2

                 x1≥0, x2 ≥0

 

b) The highest routine demand for exterior paint is almost 2.5 tons

                 x1≤ 2.5

c) Routine demand for interior paint is as a minimum 2 tons

                 x2 ≥ 2

d) Routine demand for interior paint is accurately 1 ton more than that for exterior paint.

                 x2 > x1 + 1
