Let the number of souvenirs of type A and type B be x and y respectively
To maximize : Z= Rs\left ( 100x+120y \right )
subject to constantsx\geq 0,y\geq 0
                                   5x+8y\leq 200
                                   10x+8y\leq 240
corner points                                   value of Z (in Rs)
A(0,25)                                               3000
B(8,20)                                               3200 \leftarrow \: Maximum
C(24,0)                                               2400
Hence the maximum profit of Rs 3200 is obtained when 8 souvenirs of type A and 20 souvenirs of type B is manufactured.
