16. The production manager for the Coory soft drink company is considering the production of 2 kinds of soft drinks: regular and diet. Two of the limited resources are production time (8 hours = 480 minutes per day) and syrup limited to 675 gallons per day. To produce a regular case requires 2 minutes and 5 gallons of syrup, while a diet case needs 4 minutes and 3 gallons of syrup. Profits for regular soft drink are $3.00 per case and profits for diet soft drink are $2.00 per case. What is the time constraint?

A) 2R + 5D ≤ 480

B) 2D + 4R ≤ 480

C) 2R + 3D ≤ 480

D) 3R + 2D ≤ 480

E) 2R + 4D ≤ 480


17. Cully furniture buys 2 products for resale: big shelves (B) and medium shelves (M). Each big shelf costs $500 and requires 100 cubic feet of storage space, and each medium shelf costs $300 and requires 90 cubic feet of storage space. The company has $75000 to invest in shelves this week, and the warehouse has 18000 cubic feet available for storage. Profit for each big shelf is $300 and for each medium shelf is $150. What is the objective function?

Z = $300B + $150M

A) MAX Z = $300B + $100 M

B) MAX Z = $300M + $150 B

C) MAX Z = $300B + $150 M

D) MAX Z = $300B + $500 M

E) MAX Z = $500B + $300 M


18. In a linear programming model, the numberof constraints must be less than the number of decision variables.            TRUE/ FALSE


19. Proportionality means the slope of a constraint or objective function line is not constant.  TRUE/ FALSE



20. The objective function is a linear relationship reflecting the objective of an operation.       TRUE/ FALSE
