# Suppose that Par’s management (Problem 14) encounters the following situations: a. The accounting department evises its estimate of the profit contribution for the deluxe bag to \$18 per bag b. A new low-cost material is available for the standard bag, and the profit contribution c. New sewing equipment is available that would increase the sewing operation capac- If each of these situations is encountered separately, what is the optimal solution and the per standard bag can be increased to \$20 per bag. (Assume that the profit contribution of the deluxe bag is the original \$9 value.) ity to 750 hours. (Assume that 10A +9B is the appropriate objective function.) total profit contribution?

1) Solution: optimal solution : 10,560

Working:

Thus the optimal solution will be x = 300, y = 420 and the total profit contribution equals 10560 (= 10(300)+18(420) = 10560)

2) Solution: Optimal solution : 14,160

Working:

3) Solution: Optimal solution : 7,668
