2. A company produces two products that are processed on two assembly lines. Assembly line 1 has 100 available hours, and assembly line 2 has 42 available hours. Each product requires 10 hours of processing time on line 1, while on line 2 product 1 requires 7 hours and product 2 requires 3 hours. The profit for product 1 is \$6 per unit, and the profit for product 2 is \$4 per unit.

Part A only. a) Formulate a linear programming model for this problem.

6. The Pinewood Furniture Company produces chairs and tables from two resourceslabor and wood. The company has 80 hours of labor and 36 pounds of wood available each day. Demand for chairs is limited to 6 per day. Each chair requires 8 hours of labor and 2 pounds of wood, whereas a table requires 10 hours of labor and 6 pounds of wood. The profit derived from each chair is \$400 and from each table, \$100. The company wants to determine the number of chairs and tables to produce each day in order to maximize profit.

Part A only. a) Formulate a linear programming model for this problem.

12. The Elixer Drug Company produces a drug from two ingredients. Each ingredient contains the same three antibiotics, in different proportions. One gram of ingredient 1 contributes 3 units, and 1 gram of ingredient 2 contributes 1 unit of antibiotic 1; the drug requires 6 units. At least 4 units of antibiotic 2 are required, and the ingredients each contribute 1 unit per gram. At least 12 units of antibiotic 3 are required; a gram of ingredient 1 contributes 2 units, and a gram of ingredient 2 contributes 6 units. The cost for a gram of ingredient 1 is \$80, and the cost for a gram of ingredient 2 is \$50. The company wants to formulate a linear programming model to determine the number of grams of each ingredient that must go into the drug in order to meet the antibiotic requirements at the minimum cost.
