Could you please explain the answer for requirement b? Also, can the optimal production plan be to produce 8000 snooker cues and 12000 pool cues?August 15, 2012 at 11:55 am
I cannot explain the whole answer without giving you a complete lecture on linear programming! Have you been through the lecture on this website?
If you say which part of (b) that you do not understand then I will try and help.
The optimal production plan cannot be 8000 snooker and 12000 pool – there can only be one optimal solution and it is the one in the printed answer.August 17, 2012 at 8:08 am
Thanks. I watched the lecture on this website and it was helpful.August 17, 2012 at 10:34 am
I will finally want to know if the axis for snooker cues and pool cues as X and Y axis respectively can be interchanged without affecting the right answer?August 17, 2012 at 6:02 pm
Yes – you can have the axes either way round. The graph will look different (it will be sort of sideways 🙂 ) but the answer will be exactly the same.
In the exam just make sure you label the axes so that it is clear to the marker.August 17, 2012 at 10:54 pm

Cud u explain how 8000 snooker and 12000 pool wud lead to using up more hoursMay 7, 2015 at 9:48 am
There are enough hours to make 8,000 snooker cues and 12,000 pool cues.
However this would only give a contribution of (8,000 x 40) + (12,000 x 20) = 560,000.
The object is to make the greatest contribution and making 6,000 pool cues and 12,000 snooker cues will give a contribution of 600,000.
Our free lecture on linear programming may help you.May 7, 2015 at 9:58 am
Thank u sir.I got it now.May 7, 2015 at 2:19 pm
You are welcome 🙂
