Suppose a manufacturer of printed circuits has a stock of 200 resistors, 120 transistors and 150 capacitors, and is required to produce two types of circuit.
  • Type A requires 20 resistors, 10 transistors and 10 capacitors
  • Type B requires 10 resistors, 20 transistors and 30 capacitors
  • The profit on type A circuits is £5 and that on type B circuits is £12
  • How many of each circuit should be produced to maximise the profit?
