Week II Assignment 22 November 2012
This week assignment required to solve problem 68 on page 539 of Elementary and Intermediate Algebra. There are three part to this assignment and the first part is as follows; The accompanying graph shows all of the possibilities for the number of refrigerators and the number of TVs that will fit into an 18-wheeler. | |

a) | Write an inequality to describe this region. |

p = y1-y2 / X1-x2 = 330 – 0 / 0-110 = -3/1 the slope is -3/1 or -3
Y – y1 = p(x – x1)
Y – 330 = - 3 / 1(x-0)
Y = - 3x/1 + 330
-3x/1 +330 = y expression switch by place the y on the right hand side
-3x/-3 = y/-3 – 330/ -3 divide each equation by -3 and cancel out like terms
-3y = 1x + 110
-3y + 1x < 110

b) | Will the truck hold 71 refrigerators and 118 TVs? |

-3 (71) + 1 (118) < 110
-213 + 118 < 110
-95 < 110 no the truck will not hold 71 refrigerators and 118 TVs. c) | Will the truck hold 51 refrigerators and 176 TVs? |

-3 (51) + 1 (176) < 110
-153 +176 < 110
23 < 110 yes the truck will hold at least 51 refrigerators and 176 TVs

The Burbank Buy More store is going to make an order which will include at most 60 refrigerators. What is the maximum number of TVs which could also be delivered on the same 18-wheeler? Describe the restrictions this would add to the existing graph.
Solving for y
1(60) + -3y < 110
-3y < -60 + 110 add 110 to -60 to get 50
-3y < 50 divide both terms by -3
-3y/-3 > 50/-3 signs flip
Y > -50/3 or y = 16 there will be no added restriction because the maximum numbers of TVs The next day, the Burbank Buy More decides they will have a television sale so they change their order to include at least 200 TVs. What is the maximum number of refrigerators which could also be delivered in the same truck? Describe the restrictions this would add to the original graph.
1x + -3 (200) < 110
X < 600 + 100
X = < 710
If 200 TVs are ship

12. x12=2750 13. x13=8580 14. x14=4460 I used this distribution model because the question states that the company in not changing its current distribution strategy. Constraints 1-2 are the number of units that the two plants are able to produce. Constraints 3-5 are transshipment constraints; they guarantee that the number of units shipped into the distribution center is equal to the number shipped out. Constraints 6-14 are the number of units demanded at each customer zone and are in place to guarantee the demand is satisfied. Now to show how to calculate the totals we must set up the model to show no limitations as the problem is saying. To set that up I am going to list the new formulas without limitations.…

In the equation (1) the number 12 is multiplied by x which is an unknown unit number. It is added to 15 multiplied by x which is an unknown unit number of classic rockers. Both units and their unknowns cannot exceed 3000 feet of lumber added together. In the equation the first step is to find the limit of the variable (x) which represents the modern rockers. Now substitute 0 for the letter (y) which should cancel out the (y) variable. What is left is 12x ≤ 3000. Next divide 12 by both sides to see what is the limited number of feet that the company can use without exceeding the maximum. The answer should be 250 board feet of maple lumber to make modern rockers.…
