## a. Explain the graphical method of solving Linear Programming Problem.

b. A furniture manufacturing company plans to make two products: chairs and tablesfrom its available resources, which consists of 400 board feet of mahogany timber and
450 man-hours of labour. It knows that to make a chair requires 5 board feet and
10 man- hours and yields a profit of Rs.45 while each table uses 20 board feet and
15 man-hours and has a profit of Rs.80.
Formulate the LPP to maximise the profit.
