Problem 1:

Using 3,000,000 tomatoes for production (without extra tomatoes)

Decision variables

a1 = Amount of A grade tomatoes in Whole tomatoes

b1 = = Amount of B grade tomatoes in Whole tomatoes

a2 = Amount of A grade tomatoes in tomatoes juice

b2 = Amount of B grade tomatoes in tomatoes juice

b3 = Amount of B grade tomatoes in tomato paste

Resource Constraints:

C1 a1-3b1 >= 0

C2 3a2-b2 >= 0

C3 a1+b1 <= 14400000

C4 a2+b2 <= 1000000

C5 b3 <= 2000000

C6 a1+a2 <= 600000

C7 b1+b2+b3 <= 2400000

a1, a2, b1, b2, b3 >= 0

Objective Function:

Z = 0.0822 a1 + 0.0822 b1 + 0.066 a2 + 0.066 b2 + 0.074 b3

Maximize Z
