Lets x and y number of units of type A and B goods are produced To maximize : Z= 40x+50y \,\; in \; Rs subject to constraints : x\geq 0\; y\geq 0
3x+y\leq 9\; ,x+2y\leq 8
Corner points                                           value of Z(in Rs)
O(0,0)                                                            0
A(3,0)                                                           120
B(2,3)                                                            230 \leftarrow Maximum
C(0,4)                                                           200
so maximum profit of 230 Rs is obtained when 2 & 3 units of Type A and Type B goods are made, resp.
