Introduction

Linear Programming Our school is planning to introduce house t-shirts for each of the four houses, however, they have set the task of obtaining the t-shirts to each individual house. Our house, Garrett Anderson, has 85 people, and we thought that it would be cheaper to share the price of the t-shirts with another house, Fry. Garrett Anderson t-shirts would be white, the house colour, with the house logo on it, and Fry would be purple, with their house logo on it. Fry need 70 t-shirts. It costs �5 to buy each white t-shirt and an extra �0.75 each t-shirt to be dyed the purple colour. It costs an extra �1.00 to buy a large sized t-shirt, regardless of colour. It is optional for years 11-13 to buy a t-shirt, but if we buy 100+ t-shirts, we receive a 10% discount, but if we buy 150+ t-shirts, we receive a 15% discount. The overall cost would be shared between the two houses. However, I complied a new question, as this did not complete the criteria of the coursework having a profit function and it became quite complicated as Problem Two My house Garrett Anderson needs house t-shirts with the house logo printed on it. Our school has given us �800 to buy them. ...read more.

Therefore the x co-ordinate is 50. Substituting 50 into the equation to find the y co-ordinate: 50 = 3y y = 16 2/3 Therefore the point is (50, 16 2/3). Vertice 3: This is where the lines x > 3y and 4x + 5y < 800 cross. To find the y co-ordinate: x = 3y 4x = -5y + 800 Multiply the first equation by 4 4x = 12y 4x = -5y + 800 = -17y +800 y = 800 17 y = 47.06 (to 2 d.p.) Substituting the y co-ordinate into the first equation: x = 3 (47.06) x = 141.18 Therefore the point is (141.18, 47.06). Vertice 4 This is the point where the equation 4x + 5y < 800 meets the x axis. Therefore y is 0 so to find the y co-ordinate: 4x = 800 x = 800 4 x = 200 Therefore the point is (200, 0). In order to calculate profit, the equation: 6x + 8y+ = m where m equals the amount of money we would make from selling the t shirts. We must calculate first how much the t-shirts cost to make, and subtract this from how much money we would make by selling the t-shirts. (6x + 8y) - (4x + 5 y) ...read more.
