2. A manufacturer of wooden articles produces tables and chairs which require two types of inputs namely ,they being wood and labour. The manufacturer knows that for a table 3 units of wood and 1
unit of labour are required while for a chair they are 2 units each.The profit from each table is Rs.20 while it is Rs.16 for each chair.The total available resources for the manufacturer are 150 units wood and 75 units of labour.The manufacturer wants to maximize his profit by distributing his resources for
tables and chairs.Formulate the problem as linear programming problem.

3.Solve the following linear programming graphically:
Minimize z=2x1+x2
Subject to
x1 + x2 >=1,
x1 + 2x2 <=10,x2<=4
and x1>=0,x2>=0.5.

3.Use simplex method to solve following linear programming problem:
Maximize z=x1+2x2
Subject to:
x1>=0 and x2>=0

4. Solve the following integer programming problem using branch and bound method :
Maximize z=6x1+8x2
Subject to the conditions
x1,x2>=0 and are integers.

5. Obtain the set of necessary conditions for the non-linear programming problem:
Maximize z=x1^2+3x2^2 +5x3^2
Subject to the constraints:
and x1,x2,x3 >=0.

6. Find the dimension of rectangular parallelopiped with largest volume whose sides are parallel to
the coordinate planes,to be inscribed in the ellipsoid
g(x,y,z)=x^2/a^2 + y^2/b^2 + z^2/c^2 -1=0.

7. Derive the optimal solution from the Kuhn-Tucker conditions for the problem :
Minimize z=2x1 + 3x2 - x1^2 -2x2^2
Subject to the conditions:
x1 + 3x2 <=6,
5x1 + 2x2 <=10,
