38. Applied Technology, Inc. (ATD, produces bicycle frames using two fiberglass 50 per yard and the cost of the professional grade material is $9.00 fiberglass materials that improve the strength-to-weight ratio of the frames. The cost of the standard g The standard and professional grade materials contain different amounts of fiberoa carbon fiber, and Kevlar as shown in the following table rglass Fiberglass Carbon fiber Kevlar Standard Grade 84% 10% 6% Professional Grade 58% 30% 12% ATI signed a contract with a bicycle manufacturer to produce a new frame with a carbon fiber content of at least 20% and a Kevlar content of not greater than 10%. To meet the required weight specification, a total of 30 yards of material must be used for each frame. a. Formulate a linear program to determine the number of yards of each grade of fiber- glass material that ATI should use in each frame in order to minimize total cost. De fine the decision variables and indicate the purpose of each constraint. b. Use the graphical solution procedure to determine the feasible region. What are the coordinates of the extreme points? Compute the total cost at each extreme point. What is the optimal solution c. d. The distributor of the fiberglass material is currently overstocked with the profes- sional grade material. To reduce inventory, the distributor offered ATI t tunity to purchase the professional grade for $8 per yard. Will the optima solution change? Suppose that the distributor further lowers the price of the professional grade material to $7.40 per yard. Will the optimal solution change? What effect would an evea lower price for the professional grade material have on the optimal solution? Explain oppor- e.
