all of the above

Question 2.2.The $75 per credit hour course fee tacked on to all the MBA classes has generated a windfall of $56,250 in its first semester. “Now we just need to make sure we spend it all,” the Assistant Dean cackled. She charged the Graduate Curriculum Committee with generating a shopping list before their next meeting. Four months later, the chairman of the committee distributed the following. As the professor for the quantitative modeling course, he tended to think in terms of decision variables, so he added the left-most column for ease of use.

Question 5.5.Cully Furniture buys two 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 $75,000 to invest in shelves this week, and the warehouse has 18,000 cubic feet available for storage. Profit for each big shelf is $300 and for each medium shelf is $150.

Question 7.7.The production manager for the Coory soft drink company is considering the production of two kinds of soft drinks: regular (R) and diet(D). Two of the limited resources are production time (8 hours = 480 minutes per day) and syrup (1 of the ingredients), 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? (Points : 5)

2D + 4R = 480

2R + 3D = 480

3R + 2D = 480

2R + 4D = 480

E – A = 1

Question 10.10.Mallory Furniture buys two 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 $75,000 to invest in shelves this week, and the warehouse has 18,000 cubic feet available for storage. Profit for each big shelf is $300 and for each medium shelf is $150. If the Mallory Furniture company decides to purchase 150 big shelves and no medium shelves, which of the two resources will be left over? (Points : 5)

Investment money only

Storage space only

Investment money and storage space

Neither investment money nor storage space
