Question (1)

Refer to Example 9.( Diet problem) A dietician has to develop a special diet using two foods P and Q. Each packet (containing 30g) of food P contains 12 units of calcium, 4 units of iron, 6 units of vitamin A. Each packet of the same quantity of food Q contains 3 units of calcium, 20 units of iron, 4 units of cholesterol and 3 units of vitamin A. The diet equires atleast 240 units of calcium, atleast 460 units of iron and at most 300 units of cholesterol. How may packets of each food should be used to minimise the amount of viamin A in the diet? What is the minimum amount of vitamin A?How many packets of each food should be used to maximize the amount of vitamin A in the diet? What is the maximum amount of vitamin A in the diet?
