An animal feed company must produce exactly 200 Kg of a mixture
consisting of ingredients X1, X2. The ingredient X1 costs $3 per Kg and X2
costs $5 per Kg. No more than 80 Kg of X1 can be used and at least 60 Kg of
X2 must be used. Formulate the model to minimize the cost of the mixture.
A farmer has 10 acres to plant in wheat and rye. He has to plant at least 7
acres. However, he has only $1200 to spend and each acre of wheat costs
$200 to plant and each acre of rye costs $100 to plant. Moreover, the
farmer has to get the planting done in 12 hours and it takes an hour to plant
an acre of wheat and 2 hours to plant an acre of rye. If the profit is $500
per acre of wheat and $300 per acre of rye, how many acres of each should
be planted to maximize profits?
A farmer is interested in feeding his cattle at minimum cost. Two feeds are
used A&B. Each cow must get at least 400 grams/day of protein, at least
800 grams/day of carbohydrates, and not more than 100 grams/day of fat.
Given that A contains 10% protein, 80% carbohydrates and 10% fat while B
contains 40% protein, 60% carbohydrates and no fat. A costs 2 L.E/kg, and
B costs 5 L.E/kg. Formulate the problem to determine the optimum amount
of each feed to minimize cost.
