4. A dietician is planning a snack package of fruit and nuts. Each ounce of fruit will supply 1 unit of protein, 2 units of

carbohydrates, and 1 unit of fat. Each ounce of nuts will supply 1 unit of protein, 1 unit of carbohydrates, and 1 unit

of fat. Every package must provide at least 7 units of protein, at least 12 units of carbohydrates, and no more than

10 units of fat. Let x equal the ounces of fruit and y equal the ounces of nuts to be used in each package.

a. Write a system of inequalities to express the conditions of the problem.

b. Graph the feasible region of the system.

a. Fill in the chart.

Let x be the number of ounces of fruit and y the number of ounces of nuts. Referring to the chart, give the three inequalities that x and y must satisfy because of the package’s requirements for protein, fat, and carbohydrate.

<10

Give the inequalities that x and y must satisfy because they cannot be negative.

Choose the inequality that represents the given constraint.

A. 7x+3ys86 B. 3x+7y<86 C. 3x+7y>86 D. 7x+3y>86

8. A dairy company gets milk from two dairies and then blends the milk to get the desired amount of butterfat. Milk from dairy I costs $2.40 per gallon, and milk from dairy ll costs $0.80 per gallon. At most $144 is available for purchasing milk. Dairy I can supply at most 50 gallons averaging 3.7% butterfat, and dairy ll can supply at most

80 gallons averaging 2.9% butterfat. Answer parts a and b.

a. How much milk from each supplier should the company buy to get at most 100 gallons of milk with the maximum

amount of butterfat?

The company should buy gallons from dairy I and gallons from dairy ll.

What is the maximum amount of butterfat?

gallons

(Type an integer or a decimal.)

b. The solution from part a leaves both dairy I and dairy ll with excess capacity. Calculate the amount of additional

milk each dairy could produce.

The excess capacity of dairy I is gallons, and for dairy ll it is gallons.

ts there any way all this capacity could be used while still meeting the other constraints? Explain.

:.- t A. No. Any more milk purchased from either dairy will go over budget. r.. r B. Yes, 10 more gallons can be bought from dairy I and 20 more from dairy ll without going over budget. i”r C. Yes, 10 more gallons can be bought from dairy I without going over budget- i .: D. Yes, 10 more gallons can be bought from dairy I without going over budget.

9. A patient takes vitamin pills. Each day he must have at least 600 lU of vitamin A, I mg of vitamin B1 , and 25 mg of vitamin C. He can choose between pill 1 , which contains 420 lU of vitamin A, 2 mg of vitamin B, , and 5 mg of

vitamin C, and pill 2, which contains 60 lU of vitamin A, 2 mg of vitamin B., , and 10 mg of vitamin C. Pill 1 costs

309, and pill2 costs 15P. Complete parts a and b below

a. How many of each pill should he buy in order to minimize his cost? What is the minimum cost?

He should buy of pill 1 and of pill 2. The minimum cost is $ (Simplify your answers. Type integers or decimals.)

b. For the solution in part a, the patient is receiving more than he needs of at least one vitamin. ldentifiT that

vitamin, and tell how much surplus he is receiving.

He is receiving lU of vitamin A, mg of vitamin B1 , and mg of

vitamin C more than he needs. (Simplify your answers.)

ls there any way he can avoid receiving that surplus while still meeting the other constraints and minimizing cost? Explain. Choose the correct answer below.

t _,: A. Yes. Take one fewer of each pill to reduce the cost. i.,., B. No. Reducing the surplus would either cause the cost to increase or cause the patient to receive less

than needed of anoiher vitamin.

L _-, G. Yes. Reverse the numbers of each pitl taken.
