Question 28.

A cooperative society of farmers has 50 hectares of land to grow two crops A and B. The profits from crops A and B per hectare are estimated as ₹ 10,500 and ₹ 9,000 respectively. To control weeds, a liquid herbicide has to be used for crops A and B at the rate of 20 litre and 10 litre per hectare, respectively. Further not more than 800 litres of herbicide should be used in order to protect fish and wildlife using a pond which collects drainage from this land. Keeping in mind that the protection of fish and other wildlife is more important than earning profit, how much land should be allocated to each crop so as to maximize the total profit ? Form an LPP from the above and solve it graphically. Do you agree with the message that the protection of wildlife is utmost necessary to preserve the balance in environment ? [6]
Solution:

Let x hectare and y hectare be allotted to grow crops A and B respectively. Then the L.P.P. is maximize:

Z = 10,500 x + 9,000 y subject to constraints,

x + y ≤ 50

20x + 10y ≤ 800

=> 2x + y ≤ 80

and x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0

First we draw the line AB and CD whose equations are

x + y = 50 …(i)

∴ The feasible region is ODPAO which is shaded in the figure.

P is the point of intersection of the lines

x + y = 50

2x + y =80

Solving these equations, we get point P (30, 20).

The vertices of the feasible region are (0, 0), D (40, 0), P (30, 20) and A (0, 50).The value of objective function Z = 10,500 x + 9,000 y at these vertices are as follows :

∴ The maximum profit is 4,95,000 at point P (30, 20). Yes, I agree with the message in the question.

Question 29.

Assume that the chances of a patient having a heart attack is 40%. Assuming that a meditation and yoga course reduces the risk of heart attack by 30% and prescription of certain drug reduces its chance by 25%. At a time a patient can choose any one of the two options with equal possibilities. It is given that after going through one of the two options, the patient selected at random suffers a heart attack. Find the probability that the patient followed a course of meditation and yoga. Interpret the result and state which of the above stated methods is more beneficial for the patient. [6]
Solution:

Let E_{1} be taking a course of meditation and yoga and E_{2} be taking a course of drugs.

A be the patient gets a heart attack.

Since, P(E_{1}/A) < P(E_{2}/A) the course of yoga and meditation is more beneficial for a person having chances of heart attack.
