Print Media Advertising (PMA) has been providing a contract to market Buzz Cola via newspaper ads in a main southern newspaper. Full-page ads in the weekday editions (Monday through Saturday) cost $2000, while on Sunday a full-page ad costs $8000. Daily circulation of newspaper is 30,000 on weekdays and 80,000 on Sundays.

PMA has been provides a $40,000 advertising budget for the month of August. The experienced advertising executives at PMA feel which both weekday and Sunday newspaper ads are significant; hence they wish to run the equivalent of at least eight weekday and at least two Sunday ads during August. (Assume that a fractional ad would simply mean that a smaller ad is placed on one of the days; which is, 3.5 ads would mean three full-page ads and one half-page ad. Also, suppose that smaller ads reduce exposure and costs proportionately.) This August has 26 weekdays and 5 Sundays.

The goal is to determine the optimal placement of ads by PMA in the newspaper during August so as to maximize the cumulative total exposure (as measured by circulation) for the month of August.

a)  Formulate the linear programming model for the problem.

b)  Use the Graphical method to find the optimal solution. Show all steps.

c)  Use Excel Solver to find the optimal solution. Copy and paste your spreadsheet and the Answer report in its entirety from Excel. Remember to not delete/modify any part of the Answer Report.

Here is how the spreadsheet was set up for Excel Solver. The spreadsheet shows 10 weekdays and 10 for Sundays.  These numbers were selected arbitrarily. Any quantities can be entered weekdays and Sundays since Excel Solver would find the optimal solution anyway.
