**Section – A**

Question 1.

State the reason for the relation R in the set {1, 2, 3} given by R = {(1, 2), (2, 1)} not to be transitive. [1]

Question 28.

A factory makes tennis rackets and cricket bats. A tennis racket takes 1.5 hours of machine time and 3 hours of craftsman’s time in its making while a cricket bat takes 3 hours of machine time and 1 hour of craftsman’s time. In a day, the factory has the availability of not more than 42 hours of machine time and 24 hours of craftsman’s time. If the profit on a racket and on a bat is ₹ 20 and ₹ 10 respectively, find the number of tennis rackets and circket bats that the factory must manufacture to earn the maximum profit. Make it as an L.P.P. and solve graphically. [6]

Solution:

Let x be the number of tennis rackets and y that of cricket bats produced in one day in the factory.

The feasible region is ODPAO which is shaded in the figure.

The vertices of the feasible region are O(0, 0), D(8, 0), P (4, 12) and A(0, 14).

P is the point of intersection of the lines .

1.5x + 3y = 42 and 3x + y = 24

Solving these equations, we get point P(4, 12). The value of objective function Z = 20x + 10y at these vertices are as follows:

For maximum profit ₹ 200, 4 tennis rackets and 12 cricket bats should be produced.
