1. When the price of a certain commodity is R10, the quantity supplied per time period will be 60 units. When the price drops to R5, the producers will be willing to supply only 15 units per time period. Assuming that the supply function (QS ) is linear, the supply function will be given by: (a) QS = 1 p + 9 Answer: B Putting the given information as ordered pairs (p, QS ), we have (10, 60) and (5, 15) as the two points the line must go through. Then 15 − 60 slope = =9 5 − 10 Using the point-slope form of the linear equation, QS − QS1 = m(p − p1 ), and any of the two given points yields the equation QS = 9p − 30 2. The demand and supply functions for a certain commodity are given by QD = 5p/3−1 and QS = 10−2p, respectively. The quantity exchanged at equilibrium is (a) 3 Answer: B At equilibrium, QD = QS , so 5p/3 − 1 = 10 − 2p, which gives p = 3. Putting p = 3 into either QD or QS yields QE = 4.   2 1 −1 −1 2 .

Answer: C Use the origin, (0, 0), as test point. For the inequalities 4x − y ≥ 4 and y − x ≥ 1, (0, 0) is not feasible. So feasible region is on the side of the lines that does not contain (0, 0), i.e., feasible region is above the line y − x = 1 (eliminating regions A and B) and to the right of the line 4x − y = 4 (eliminating region D). Combining this with the constraint x ≤ 3 and the non-negativity constraints gives C as the feasible region. 6.

A sketch of the lines corresponding to the constraints is shown on the right. The maximum value of P is (a) 72 Answer: A (b) 116/3 (c) 40

(d) 15

(e) 27

The corner points of the feasible region are (0, 10), (0, 18), (4, 2) and (20/3, 14/3). The value of P at the corner points is 40, 72, 20 and 116/3, respectively. So the maximum value of P is 72.

Which one of the following statements is true? (a) x1 must enter the basis and x4 must leave the basis. (b) x1 must enter the basis and x5 must leave the basis. (c) x2 must enter the basis and x4 must leave the basis. (d) x2 must enter the basis and x5 must leave the basis. (e) none of the these Answer: A Since 1 + 2M (in column for x1 ) is the biggest positive value in the cj − zj row, x1 must enter the basis next. Taking the ratio of entries in the “Solution” column to the corresponding entries in the x1 column, we ﬁnd the smallest ratio occurs in the row for x4 , so x4 must leave the basis. 8.

3. A small manufacturer produces two products, A and B. The production costs per unit of A and B are R6 and R3, respectively, and the corresponding selling prices are R7 and R4. In addition, there are transportation costs of 20 cents and 30 cents for each unit of product A and B respectively. There is R2700 available to cover production costs and R120 to cover transportation costs. Set up an LP to help the manufacturer decide how many units of each product must be produced in order to maximise proﬁt. [Do Not Solve The LP - no extra marks will be given for solving the LP.] [5 Marks] Solution: Let x = number of units of product A produced y = number of units of product B produced Then proﬁt (total revenue−total costs) is given by P = (7x+4y)−(6x+3y)−(0.2x+0.3y) = 0.8x+0.7y The required LP is then maximise subject to P = 0.8x + 0.7y 6x + 3y 0.2x + 0.3y x, y
