Hi I asked this question yesterday and it was not answered. Please assist me in answering question number 4. I have attached the document for your reference. 

  • Mr. Shoemacher has $20,000 to invest in two types of mutual funds, Coleman High-yield Fund, and Coleman Equity Fund. The High-yield fund gives an annual yield of 12%, while the Equity fund earns 8%. Mr. Shoemacher would like to invest at least $3000 in the High-yield fund and at least $4000 in the Equity fund. How much money should he invest in each to maximize his annual yield, and what is the maximum yield?

MATH 106 Week 4 LEO Discussion Topic Exercises Version: 2015-1 LINEAR PROGRAMMING (Applied Finite Mathematics, ?Linear Programming: A Geometric Approach?)

 

For the following exercises, solve using the graphical method. Choose your variables, write the

 

objective function and the constraints, graph the constraints, shade the feasibility region, label all

 

corner points, and determine the solution that optimizes the objective function.

 

1. A farmer has 100 acres of land on which she plans to grow wheat and corn. Each acre of wheat

 

requires 4 hours of labor and $20 of capital, and each acre of corn requires 16 hours of labor and $40

 

of capital. The farmer has at most 800 hours of labor and $2400 of capital available. If the profit from

 

an acre of wheat is $80 and from an acre of corn is $100, how many acres of each crop should she

 

plant to maximize her profit?

 

2. Mr. Tran has $24,000 to invest, some in bonds and the rest in stocks. He has decided that the money

 

invested in bonds must be at least twice as much as that in stocks. But the money invested in bonds

 

must not be greater than $18,000. If the bonds earn 6%, and the stocks earn 8%, how much money

 

should he invest in each to maximize profit?

 

3. A computer store sells two types of computers, desktops and laptops. The supplier demands that at

 

least 150 computers be sold a month. In order to keep profits up, the number of desktops sold must

 

be at least twice of laptops. The store pays its sales staff a $75 commission for each desk top, and a

 

$50 commission for each lap top. How many of each type of computers must be sold to minimize

 

commission to its sales people? What is the minimum commission?

 

4. Mr. Shoemacher has $20,000 to invest in two types of mutual funds, Coleman High-yield Fund, and

 

Coleman Equity Fund. The High-yield fund gives an annual yield of 12%, while the Equity fund earns

 

8%. Mr. Shoemacher would like to invest at least $3000 in the High-yield fund and at least $4000 in

 

the Equity fund. How much money should he invest in each to maximize his annual yield, and what is

 

the maximum yield?

 

5. Dr. Lum teaches part-time at two different community colleges, Hilltop College and Serra College. Dr.

needs to spend 3 hours per week preparing lessons and grading papers, and for each class at Serra

 

College, he must do 4 hours of work per week. He has determined that he cannot spend more than

 

18 hours per week preparing lessons and grading papers. If he earns $4,000 per class at Hilltop

 

College and $5,000 per class at Serra College, how many classes should he teach at each college to

 

maximize his income, and what will be his income?

 

6. Mr. Shamir employs two part-time typists, Inna and Jim for his typing needs. Inna charges $10 an

 

hour and can type 6 pages an hour, while Jim charges $12 an hour and can type 8 pages per hour.

 

Each typist must be employed at least 8 hours per week to keep them on the payroll. If Mr. Shamir

 

has at least 208 pages to be typed, how many hours per week should he employ each student to

 

minimize his typing costs, and what will be the total cost? 1 MATH 106 Week 4 LEO Discussion Topic Exercises Version: 2015-1 7. Mr. Boutros wants to invest up to $20,000 in two stocks, Cal Computers and Texas Tools. The Cal

 

Computers stock is expected to yield a 16% annual return, while the Texas Tools stock promises a

 

12% yield. Mr. Boutros would like to earn at least $2,880 this year. According to Value Line

 

Magazine's safety index (1 highest to 5 lowest), Cal Computers has a safety number of 3 and Texas

 

Tools has a safety number of 2. How much money should he invest in each to minimize the safety

 

number? Note: A lower safety number means less risk.

Regular and Big Screen televisions take up, respectively, 2 and 3 sales hours of labor, and a maximum

 

of 198 hours of labor is available. If the profit made from each of these types is $60 and $80,

 

respectively, how many of each type of television should be sold to maximize profit, and what is the

 

maximum profit?

Finishing. The total work-hours available per week in the Assembly division is 60, and in the Finishing

 

division, 60. If a profit of $50 is realized for every regular radio, and $75 for every short-wave radio,
