CBSE TEST PAPER-01 
CLASS - XII MATHEMATICS (Linear Programming) 
Topic: - Linear Programming 
1. Reshma wishes to mix two types of food P and Q in such a way that the vitamin contents of
the mixture contain at least 8 units of vitamin A and 11 units of vitamin B. food P costs Rs
60/kg and Food Q costs Rs 80/kg. Food P contains 3 units/kg of Vitamin A and 5 units/kg
of Vitamin B while food Q contains 4 units/kg of Vitamin A and 2 units/kg of vitamin B.
Determine the minimum cost of the mixture.
[6] 
2. One kind of cake requires 200g of flour and 25g of fat, and another kind of cake requires
100g of flour and 50g of fat. Find the maximum number of cakes which can be made from
5kg of flour and 1kg of fat assuming that there is no shortage of the other ingredients used
in making the cakes.
[6] 
3. A factory makes tennis rackets and cricket bats. A tennis racket takes 1.5 hours of machine
time and 3 hours of craftman’s time in its making while a cricket bat takes 3 hour of
machine time an 1 hour of craftman’s time. In a day, the factory has the availability of not
more than 42 hours of machine time and 24 hours of craftsman’s time.
(i) What number of rackets and bats must be made if the factory is t work at full capacity?
(ii) If the profit on a racket and on a bat is Rs 20 and Rs 10 respectively, find the maximum
profit of the factory when it works at full capacity. 
[6] 
4. A manufacturer produces nuts and bolts. It takes 1 hours of work on machine A and 3 hours
on machine B to produce a package of bolts. He earns a profit of Rs 17.50 per package on
nuts and Rs 7.00 per package on bolts. How many package of each should be produced each
day so as to maximise his profit, if he operates his machines for at the most 12 hours a day?
[6] 
5. A factory manufactures two types of screws, A and B. Each type of screw requires the use
of two machines, an automatic and a hand operated. It takes 4 minutes on the automatic and
6 minutes on hand operated machines to manufacture a package screws A, while it takes 6
minutes on automatic and 3 minutes and on the hand operated machines to manufacture a
package of screws B. Each machine is available for at the most 4 hours on any day. The
manufacturer can sell a package of screws A at a profit of Rs 7 and screws B at a profit of
Rs 10. Assuming that he can sell all the screws he manufactures, how many package of
each type should the factory owner produce in a day in order to maximise his profit?
Determine the maximum profit.

of two machines, an automatic and a hand operated. It takes 4 minutes on the automatic and
6 minutes on hand operated machines to manufacture a package screws A, while it takes 6
minutes on automatic and 3 minutes and on the hand operated machines to manufacture a
package of screws B. Each machine is available for at the most 4 hours on any day. The
manufacturer can sell a package of screws A at a profit of Rs 7 and screws B at a profit of
Rs 10. Assuming that he can sell all the screws he manufactures, how many package of
each type should the factory owner produce in a day in order to maximise his profit?
Determine the maximum profit.

6. A cottage industry manufactures pedestal lamps and wooden shades, each requiring the use
of a grinding/cutting machine and a sprayer. It takes 2 hours on grinding/cutting machine
and 3 hours on the sprayer to manufacture a pedestal lamp. It takes 1 hour on the
grinding/cutting machine and 2 hour on the sprayer to manufacture a shade. On any day, the
sprayer is available for at the most 20 hours and the grinding/cutting machine for at the
most 12 hours. The profit form the sale of a lamp is Rs 5 and that from a shade is Rs 3.
Assuming that the manufacturer can sell all the lamps and shades that he produces, how
should he schedule his daily production in order to maximise his profit?

7. A company manufactures two types of novelty souvenirs made of plywood. Souvenirs of
type A require 5 minutes each for cutting and 10 minutes each for assembling. Souvenirs of
type B require 8 minutes each for cutting and 8 minutes each for assembling. There are 3
hours 20 minutes available for cutting and 4 hours for assembling. The profit is Rs 5 each
for type A and Rs 6 each for type B souvenirs. How may souvenirs of each type should the
company manufacture in order to maximise the profit?

8. A merchant plans to sell two types of personal computers – a desktop model and a portable
model that will cost Rs 25000 and Rs 40000 respectively. He estimates that the total
monthly demand of computers will not exceed 250 units. Determine the number of units of
each type of computers which the merchant should stock to get maximum profit if he does
not want to invest more than Rs 70 lakhs and if his profit on the desktop model is Rs 4500
and on portable model is Rs 5000.

9. A diet is to contain at least 80 units of vitamin A and 100 units of minerals. Two foods F
1
and F
2 
are available. Food F1 costs Rs 4 per unit food and F
2
 costs Rs 6 per unit. On unit of
food F
1 
contains 3 units of vitamin A and 4 units of minerals. One unit of food F
2
 contains 6
units of vitamin A and 3 units of minerals. Formulate this as linear programming problem.
Find the minimum cost for diet that consists of mixture of these two foods and also meets
the minimal nutritional requirements.
[6] 
10. There are two types of fertilizers F
1
 and F
2
. F
1
 consists of 10% nitrogen and 6% phosphoric
acid and F
2
 consists of 5% nitrogen and 10% phosphoric acid. After testing the soil
conditions, a farmer finds that she needs atleast 14kg of nitrogen and 14kg of phosphoric
acid for her crop. If F
1
 costs Rs 6/kg and F
2
 costs Rs 5/kg, determine requirements are met
at a minimum cost. What is the minimum cost?
