What do you mean by linear programming problem, Operation Research

Q1. a. What do you mean by linear programming problem? Explain the steps involved in linear programming problem formulation?

b. A paper mill produces two grades of paper viz., X and Y. Because of raw material restrictions, it cannot produce more than 400 tons of grade X paper and 300 tons of grade Y paper in a week. There are 160 production hours in a week. It requires 0.20 and 0.40 hours to produce a ton of grade X and Y papers. The mill earns a profit of Rs. 200 and Rs. 500 per ton of grade X and Y paper respectively. Formulate this as a Linear Programming Problem. 5 +5 = 10 marks (200 - 250 words each)
