[ Therefore is minimum at ]
[ Therefore is maximum at ]
Question 22: A company uses three machines to manufacture two types of shirts, half sleeves shirts and full sleeves shirt. The number of hours required per week on machines and for one shirt of each type is given in the following table:
|Half Sleeves Shirt||1||2||8/5|
|Full Sleeves Shirt||2||1||8/5|
None of the machines can be in operations for more than hours per week. The profit on each half sleeves shirt is Rs. and the profit on each full sleeves shirt is Rs. .
How many of each type of shirts should be made per week to maximize the company’s profit. 
Let the number of half sleeves shirts produced
Let the number of full sleeves shirts produced
Now draw the three lines:
|A( 0, 20)||30|
|C( 15, 10)||30|
|D( 20, 0)||20|
Therefore the maximum value is at . Hence the company should make Half Sleeves Shirts and Full Sleeves Shirts to maximize profit.
