Question 1
A.
R (x)= 1.79 x
i.
ii.

C (x)= 0.53x + 1071

iii.

Solving R (x)= C (x) for x yields:

1.79 x = 0.53 x + 1071
Þ 1.26 x = 1071
\ x = 850
So, the break-even point is (850,1521.50).
B.

Let x denote the “amount of money invested into AA bonds” and y denote the “amount of money invested into Savings and Loan Certificates”. Then, x+
y = 150000 (1)
0.10 x +

0.05 y =

10000 (2)

Solving equations (1) and (2) simultaneously will yield x = 50000 and y = 100000 . Thus, Mr. Khan should invest $50,000 in AA bonds and $100,000 in Savings and Loan Certificates.
C.

Let x denote the “cost of a medium popcorn” and y denote the “cost of a large coke”. Then,
()
()

Solving equations (1) and (2) simultaneously yields x = 4.50 and y = 2.75. So, a medium popcorn costs $4.50 and a large coke costs $2.75.

Question 2
a. Let x denote “tonnes of Type I steel”, y denote “tonnes of Type II steel”, and

P (x, y ) denote the “profit function”. Thus, the LPP is P (x, y)= 240 x + 80 y
