1 Study Guide 2 Solutions MATH 111 Having read through the sample test, I wanted to warn everyone, that I might consider asking questions involving inequalities, the absolute value function (as in the suggested problems from 9.3 and 9.4 on the web). There were two errors in the initial solution. Part 1 problem 4 and part 2 problem 3. Sample Problems for Test 2 Math 111 Part 1: No calculator or study sheet. Remember to get full credit, you must show your work. 1. State the future value formula for an annuity and identify what each of the variables stand for. Solution: The future value formula for an annuity is ( (1 + r ) ( (1 + i) n ) 1 m S = R )mt 1 r = R. i m The variables have the following meaning. S denotes the future value of the annuity, R denotes the payment each period, r denotes the annual interest rate, m denotes the number of payments (periods) per year, t denotes the number of years of the annuity, i denotes the interest rate per period, and n denotes the number of periods over the life of the annuity. 2. If A is a 3 3 matrix, and v = What is v + A 1 Av? Solution: Using that A 1 A = I 3 the 3 3 identity matrix, then 6 v + A 1 Av = v + v = 2, ,

2 3. Are the two matrices below inverses? Explain how you know. [ 3 ] 1 [ 2 ] Solution: Yes they are inverses. We know that is true by multiplying the two matrices and seeing that we get the identity matrix out. To see that: [ ] [ ] = = [ ] ( 5) 3 ( 1) ( 5) 5 ( 1) [ ] Determine graphically the solution set for each system of inequalities and indicate whether the solution set is bounded or unbounded: x y < 7 3x + 2y 6 x 0 Solution: The solution is unbounded. To solve it graphically, you need to graph the three lines: x y = 7 (which passes through (0, 7) and (7, 0), graphed with a dashed line), the line 3x + 2y = 6 (which passes through (0, 3) and (2, 0), and the line x = 0 (the y-axis). After checking a test point, we see that the solution is the shaded region to the upper right of the triangle. including the two solid lines as boundary. (I will try and get a picture solution on the web soon, but I am having trouble getting one converted to the type of file I need to do so.) 5. Suppose we are given a linear programming problem with a feasible set S and an objective function P = ax + by. Finish the following sentences: (a) If S is value on S. then P has both a maximum and a minimum (b) If S is and both a and b are nonnegative, then P has a minimum value on S provided that the constraints defining S include the inequalities x 0 and y 0. 2

3 (c) If S is then the linear programming problem has no solution; that is P has neither a maximum nor a minimum value. Solution: These are from a theorem in the book. (a) If S is bounded then P has both a maximum and a minimum value on S. (b) If S is unbounded and both a and b are nonnegative, then P has a minimum value on S provided that the constraints defining S include the inequalities x 0 and y 0. (c) If S is the empty set then the linear programming problem has no solution; that is P has neither a maximum nor a minimum value. 6. Give an example of a simplex tableau that is in final form and one that is not in final form. Solution: A simplex in final form is x y u v P A simplex that is not in final form is x y u v P The latter corresponds to the optimization problem P = 2x + 3y x + 3y 10 x + 2y 15 x, y 0 7. Suppose that you take out a loan for \$30, 000 over a 10 year term at 5% interest with monthly payments. At the end of 3 years do you anticipate that you would owe closer to \$15, 000, \$17, 500, \$20, 000, or 3

4 \$22, 500. Explain. (You should think about how to solve this without a calculator.) Solution: If there were no interest on the loan, then in 3 years we would pay off 3/10 of the loan value. That is \$9, 000. Thus, we must have at least \$21, 000 left on the principle of the loan. Since much of our payments would be towards interest early on, we would anticipate that the actually amount we owe would be closer to \$22, Simplify or evaluate (a) 18x 4 y Solution: 3x 2 2y. (b) 8 4/3. Solution: Since 8 4/3 = (8 1/3 ) 4 = 2 4, the solution is (c) x 3/4 x 1/4. Solution: By one of the exponent rules x3/4 x 1/4 = x 3/4 ( 1/4) = x. (d) (7x 2 5x + 2) (x 2 3x 4). Solution: 6x 2 2x + 6. (e) (3x 2y) 2 Solution: 9x 2 12xy + 4y 2. (f) x2 +x 2 x 2 4. Solution: Factoring numerator and denominator x 2 + x 2 x 2 4 (x + 2)(x 1) = (x 2)(x + 2) = x 1 x 2. (g) x 2 +y 2 x+y. Solution: Factoring and canceling x 2 + y 2 x + y = x 2 + y 2 x + y = x2 y 2 x 2 y 2 y 2 + x 2 (x + y)(x 2 y 2 ). 4

5 9. True or false: the future value of an annuity can be found by adding together all the payments that are paid into the account. Solution: False. The annuity also earns interest on the payments, thus the future value will be greater than the sum of all the payments that are paid into the account. 10. State the quadratic formula. Solution: If ax 2 + bx + c = 0 and a 0, with a, b, c constants, then x = b ± b 2 4ac. 2a 11. Factor out the greatest common factor from each expression (a) 3x 5 12x 3 + 9x 2 Solution: 3x 2 (x 3 4x + 3). (b) 4x 2/3 y 3xy 1/3. Solution: x 2/3 y 1/3 (4y 2/3 3x 1/3 ). 12. Factor 9a 2 x 2. Solution: 9a 2 x 2 = (3a x)(3a + x). 13. Given that 2 is a real root of the polynomial f(x), state a factor of f(x). Solution: By the factor theorem x 2 is a factor of f(x). 5

6 14. Evaluate the given expression (a) Solution: = 2. (b) Solution: = =

7 Calculator and Study Sheet Allowed 1. Suppose tuition at Georgetown is increasing at 12% per year, and currently costs \$20, 000 per year. How much will tuition at Georgetown be in 5 years? Solution: The future value of \$20, 000 in 5 years from now will be (from our future/present value conversion formula) is A = 20000(1 +.12) 5 = Thus the future value will be roughly \$35, A T-shirt company wants to manufacture 2 types of T-shirts. The first T-shirt requires 10 minutes on machine A, 5 minutes on machine B, and 3 minutes on machine C. The second T-shirt requires 7 minutes of manufacturing time on machine A, 6 minutes of manufacturing time on machine B, and 4 minutes of manufacturing time on machine C. The first T-shirt sells for a profit of 5 dollars and the second T-shirt sells for a profit of 6 dollars. Set up the linear programming problem for this company. Label all of your variables. Correction to question: Oops, I didn t include the amount of time on each machine... sorry. Suppose machine A has 2 hours available, machine B has 1 hour available, and machine C has 3 hours available. Solution: Let x denote the number of the first T-shirt to be made, and y denote the number of the second T-shirt to be made. For the requirements on machine A, we know 10x + 7y For machine B we have 5x + 6y and for machine C, we have 3x + 4y. Of course since there aren t any negative numbers of T-shirts, x 0 and y 0. We are trying to maximize the profit function P = 5x + 6y. Thus the final set of equations is: P = 5x + 6y 10x + 7y 120 5x + 6y 60 3x + 4y

8 3. Set up a simplex tableau associated to the programming problem P = 4x + 5y + 2z 3x + 5y z 100 2x + 7z 125 4y + z 110 x, y, z 0 Set up a simplex tableau for this problem. Solution: We have slack variables u, v, and w for the three equations. Then we have x y z u v w P Suppose a linear programming problem has the following set up: x denotes the number of widgets to be produced, y denotes the number of thingymabobs to be produced, and z denotes the number of whatchamacallits to be produced. There are 3 machines that each product requires time on. Suppose the final tableau for this problem is: x y z u v w P What is the final solution associated with this tableau? Interpret this solution using words. Does any machine have slack time? Solution: The simplex corresponds to the following equations. x = z + 4u + +3w y = 10 6u 2z v = 20 2z 3u 8w P = 100 3z 8u 4w 8

9 P is maximized when z = u = w = 0. Thus a solution is given by: x = 15, y = 10, and z = 0. That is that we should make 15 widgets, 10 thingymabods, and 0 whatchamacallits. There is slack on the machine associated to the variable v. 5. Determine the monthly payment that would be made on a 5 year car loan for \$40, 000 car at 7.5% annual interest payable every month. Solution: We first find out the final value of at 7.5% interest using the present/future value formula: A = 40000( /12) 5 12 = Using the future value of the annuity formula, we have = R ( /12) /12 = R Solving for R we obtain dollars per month. R = As a quick check of the sensibility of this answer is that in just pure dollar value, we pay in about Since this is more than the initial value, I think the number sounds reasonable. 6. Price publishing sells encyclopedias under two payment plans: cash or installment. Under the installment plan, the customer pays \$22 per month over a 3-year period with interest charged on the balance at a rate of 18% per year compounded monthly. Find the cash price for a set of encyclopedias if it is equivalent to the price paid by a customer using the installment plan. Solution: An installment plan is the same any purchase over time. Thus, we need the present value of the \$22/month installment. To find the final value of the encyclopedia set is given by our annuity formula ( (1 +.18/12) 36 ) 1 S = 22 = /12 Now we need to find the present value using our future/present value conversion = P (1 +.18/12) 36. 9

10 Calculating the (1 +.18/12) 36 = Thus P = dollars is the initial value of the annuity. Thus the cash price should be

3. Evaluate the objective function at each vertex. Put the vertices into a table: Vertex P=3x+2y (0, 0) 0 min (0, 5) 10 (15, 0) 45 (12, 2) 40 Max

SOLUTION OF LINEAR PROGRAMMING PROBLEMS THEOREM 1 If a linear programming problem has a solution, then it must occur at a vertex, or corner point, of the feasible set, S, associated with the problem. Furthermore,
