1. Micromedia offers computer training seminars on a variety of topics. In the seminars each student

works at a personal computer, practicing the particular activity that the instructor is presenting. FBJU

is currently planning a two-day seminar on the use of Microsoft Excel in statistical analysis. The

projected fee for the seminar is \$ 300 per student. The cost of instructor compensation, lab assistants,

and promotion is \$2800. The cost for the conference room is \$1000 per day. FBJU rents computers

for its seminars at a cost of \$30 per computer per day. The cost of course materials and certificate is

\$20 per student. Snacks and coffee breaks cost is \$10 per student per day. Let x represent the number

of students who enroll in the seminar.

-Answer the following questions with explanation:

a) Develop a model for the total cost to put on the seminar.

b) Develop a model for the total profit.

c) How much profit/loss will be earned if 30 students enroll in the seminar.

d) Compute the breakeven point.

2. A Publishing Company is considering publishing a paperback textbook on spreadsheet applications

for business. The fixed cost of manuscript preparation, textbook design, and production setup is

estimated to be \$80,000. Variable production and material costs areestimated at \$3 per book. Demand

over the life of the book is estimated to be 4000 copies.The publisher plans to sell the text to college

and university bookstores for \$20 each.

-Answer the following questions with explanation:

a) What is the breakeven point?

b) What profit or loss can be anticipated with a demand of 4000 copies?

c) With a demand of 4000 copies, what is the minimum price per copy that thepublisher must charge

to break even?

3. For the following linear program problem:

Max 5A + 2B

Such That:

1A - 2B ? 420

2A + 3B ? 610

6A - 1B ? 125

A, B ? 0

-Answer the following questions with explanation:

a) Write the linear program in standard form. b) Draw the constraints lines and shade in the feasible region on the graph.

c) Identify the optimal extreme point. What is the optimal solution?

d) Which constraints are binding? Explain.

e) How much slack or surplus is associated with the nonbinding constraint?

4. Americana makes two salsa products: Western Foods Salsa and Mexico City Salsa. Essentially, the

two products have different blends of whole tomatoes, tomato sauce, and tomato paste. The Western

\$0.03 for each jar of salsa produced. The sales revenue of \$1.64 for each jar of Western Foods Salsa

and \$1.93 for each jar of Mexico City Salsa.
