3d. 1A + 2B < 3;4. In a linear programming problem, a valid objective function can be represented asA) Max Z = 5xy B) Max Z 5x2 + 2y2 C) Max 3x + 3y + 1/3z D) Min (x1 + x2) / x3;5. Non-negativity constraints restrict the decision variables to negative values. TRUE/ FALSE;6. A graphical solution is limited to linear programming problems with ___ decision variables2;7. A constraint is a linear relationship representing a restriction on decision making.TRUE/ FALSE;8. Linear programming is a model consisting of linear relationships representing a firm's decisions given an objective and resource constraints. TRUE/ FALSE;9. Non-negativity constraintsA) restrict the decision variables to zero. B) restrict the decision variables to positive values C) restrict the decision variables to negative values D) do not restrict the sign of the decision variable. E) both A and B;10. Decision models are mathematical symbols representing levels of activity. TRUE/ FALSE;11. Which of the following could be a linear programming objective function?A) Z = 1A + 2BC + 3D B) Z = 1A + 2B + 3C + 4D C) Z = 1A + 2B / C + 3D D) Z = 1A + 2B2 + 3D E) all of the above;12. Decision variablesA) measure the objective function B) measure how much or how many items to produce, purchase, hire, etc. C) always exist for each constraint D) measure the values of each constraint;13. A linear programming model consists of decision variables, constraints, but no objective function. TRUE/ FALSE;14. The region which satisfies all of the constraints in a graphical linear programming problem is called the A) region of optimality B) feasible solution space C) region of non-negativity D) optimal solution space;15. The _______________ property of linear programming models indicates that the decision variables cannot be restricted to integer values and can take on any fractional value.A) linearity B) additive C) divisibility D) certainty E) proportionality;16. The production manager for the Coory soft drink company is considering the production of 2 kinds of soft drinks: regular and diet. Two of the limited resources are production time (8 hours = 480 minutes per day) and syrup limited to 675 gallons per day. To produce a regular case requires 2 minutes and 5 gallons of syrup, while a diet case needs 4 minutes and 3 gallons of syrup. Profits for regular soft drink are $3.00 per case and profits for diet soft drink are $2.00 per case. What is the time constraint? A) 2R + 5D? 480 B) 2D + 4R? 480 C) 2R + 3D? 480 D) 3R + 2D? 480 E) 2R + 4D? 480;17. Cully furniture buys 2 products for resale: big shelves (B) and medium shelves (M). Each big shelf costs $500 and requires 100 cubic feet of storage space, and each medium shelf costs $300 and requires 90 cubic feet of storage space. The company has $75000 to invest in shelves this week, and the warehouse has 18000 cubic feet available for storage. Profit for each big shelf is $300 and for each medium shelf is $150. What is the objective function?Z = $300B + $150MA) MAX Z = $300B + $100 M B) MAX Z = $300M + $150 BC) MAX Z = $300B + $150 MD) MAX Z = $300B + $500 ME) MAX Z = $500B + $300 M;18. In a linear programming model, the numberof constraints must be less than the number of decision variables. TRUE/ FALSE;19. Proportionality means the slope of a constraint or objective function line is not constant. TRUE/ FALSE;20. The objective function is a linear relationship reflecting the objective of an operation. TRUE/ FALSE
