Given the following linear programming problem that minimizes cost.

Min Z = 2x + 8y

Subject to 8x + 4y ≥ 64

2x + 4y ≥ 32

y ≥ 2

What is the sensitivity range for the third constraint, y ≥ 2?

Answer

0 to 4

2 to 5.33

0 to 5.33

4 to 6.33

Question 16

In a portfolio problem, X1, X2, and X3 represent the number of shares purchased of stocks 1, 2, an 3 which have selling prices of $15, $47.25, and $110, respectively. The investor has up to $50,000 to invest. The investor stipulates that stock 1 must not account for more than 35% of the number of shares purchased. Which constraint is correct?

Answer

X1 ≤ 0.35(X1 + X2 +.X3)

X1 = 0.35(X1 + X2 +.X3)

Question 17

In a portfolio problem, X1, X2, and X3 represent the number of shares purchased of stocks 1, 2, an 3 which have selling prices of $15, $47.25, and $110, respectively. The investor has up to $50,000 to invest.

An appropriate part of the model would be

Answer

15X1 + 47.25X2 +110 X3 ≤ 50,000

MAX Z =15X1 + 47.25X2 + 110X3

X1 + X2 +X3 ≤ 50,000

MAX Z = 50(15)X1 + 50 (47.25)X2 + 50 (110)X3

Question 18

In a capital budgeting problem, if either project 1 or project 2 is selected, then project 5 cannot be selected. Which of the alternatives listed below correctly models this situation?

Answer

x1 + x2 + x5 ≤ 1

x1 + x2 + x5 ≥1

x1 + x5 ≤ 1, x2 + x5 ≤ 1

x1 – x5 ≤ 1, x2 – x5 ≤ 1
