Draw a rough sketch and find the area bounded by the curve x2 = y and x + y = 2.
Solution: The given curves are: x2 = y
Which is an upward parabola with vertex at origin
And line x + y = 2 ⇒ y = 2 – x
x2 = 2 – x
⇒ x2 + x – 2 = 0
⇒ (x + 2)(x – 1) = 0
⇒ x = -2 and x = 1
Now, y = 2-(-2) = 4
and y = 2 – 1 ⇒ y = 1
⇒ y = 4 and y = 1

Question 19.
(a) A company produces a commodity with ₹ 24,000 as fixed cost. The variable cost estimated to be 25% of the total revenue received on selling the product, is at the rate of ₹ 8 per unit. Find the break-even point.
(b) The total cost function for a production is given by C (x) = $\frac { 3 }{ 4 }$ x2 – 7x + 27.
Find the number of units produced for which M.C. = AC.
(M.C. = Marginal Cost and A.C. = Average Cost)
(c) If $\vec { x }$ = 18, $\vec { x }$ = 100, σx = 14, σy = 20 and correlation coefficient rxy = 0.8, find the reggression equation of y on x.
Solution:
(a) Suppose that x number of the unit be produced and sold.
As each unit’s variable cost is 25% of revenue
The variable cost of x units = 25 % of ₹ 8x = ₹ 2x
Total cost of producing x units C(x) = TFC + TVC = ₹ (24000 + 2x)
Price of one unit = ₹ 8
Total revenue of selling x units = R(x) = ₹ 8x
At break-even values,
C(x) = R(x)
⇒ 24000 + 2x = 8x
⇒ 24000 = 6x
⇒ x = 4000

Solution:   Question 21. 
(a) The cost function of a product is given by C (x) = $\frac { { x }^{ 3 } }{ 3 }$ – 45x2 – 900x + 36, where x is the number of units produced. How many units should be produced to minimise the marginal cost?

A carpenter has 90, 80 and 50 running feet respectively of teak wood, plywood and rosewood which is used to produce product A and product B. Each unit of product A requires 2, 1 and 1 running feet and each unit of product B requires 1, 2 and 1 running feet of teak wood, plywood and rosewood respectively. If product A is sold for ₹ 48 per unit and product B is sold for ₹ 40 per unit, how many units of product A and product B should be produced and sold by the carpenter, in order to obtain the maximum gross income?
Formulate the above as a Linear Programming Problem and solve it, indicating clearly the feasible region in the graph.
Solution:
Let x units of product A and y units of product B be produced and sold by the carpenter. Then information given in the statement is tabulated as: Then the LPP is maximise P = 48x + 40y
Subject to the constraints:
2x + y ≤ 90 …..(i)
x + 2y ≤ 80 ….. (ii)
x + y ≤ 50 ….. (iii)
x ≥ 0, y ≥ 0 Draw the graphs of equations (i), (ii), (iii)
Then shaded region is the required feasible region which is bounded with comer points
O(0, 0), A(45, 0), B(40, 0), C(20, 30) and D(0, 40).
At O(0, 0), the value of P = 0 + 0 = 0
At A(45, 0), the value of P = 48 × 45 + 0 = 2160
At B(40,10), the value of P = 48 × 40 + 40 × 10 = 2320 → Maximum
At C(20, 30), the value of P = 48 × 20 + 40 × 30 = 2160
At D(0, 40), the value of P = 0 + 40 × 40 = 1600
We have the maximum value of P as ₹ 2320 and it is obtained at the vertex B (40, 10).
Hence, the maximum gross income of the carpenter should make 40 units of product A and 10 units of product B.
