A toy company manufactures two types of doll; a basic version-doll A and a deluxe version doll B. Each doll of type B takes twice as long as to produce as one of type A, and the company would have time to make a maximum of 3000 per day if it produces only the basic version. The supply of plastic is sufficient to produce 1800 dolls per day (both A and B combined). The deluxe version requires a fancy dress of which there are only 900 per day available. If company makes profit of Rs.4 and Rs.3 per doll, respectively, on doll A and B; how many each should be produced per day in order to maximize profit.

Hello student,
Please find the answer to your question below
Let x1, x2 be the number of dolls produced per day of type A and B
respectively. Let the doll A require ‘t’ hours so that the doll B requires 2t
hours.
Therefore, the total time to manufacture x1 and x2 dolls should not exceed
3,000t hours that is tx1 + 2tx2 ≤ 3000t
So. maximize Z=4x1+3x2
subject to constraints
x1+2x2≤3000
x1+x2≤1800
x2≤900
x1,x2>=0
so x1=x2=900
so Z=6300
