1. (a) "Operations Research (OR) is an aid for the executive in making his/her decisions by providing him/her with needed quantitative information based on the scientific method of analysis". Discuss the statement and give atleast two examples to illustrate how operations research is helpful in decision making.

(b) A manufacturing company is producing two products A and B. Each requires processing on two machines 1 and 2. Product A requires 03 hours of processing on machine 1 and 02 hours on machine 2. Product B requires 2 hours of processing on machine 1 and 6 hours on machine 2. The unit profits for product A and product B are Rs. 10 and Rs. 20 respectively. The available time in a given quarter on machine 1 and machine 2 are 1200 hrs and 1500 hrs respectively. The market survey has predicted that not more than 400 units of product A and not more than 250 units of product B can be sold in the given quarter. The company wants to determine the product mix to maximize the profits. Formulate the problem as linear programming mathematical model and determine the profit.

2. (a) Why is the simplex method a better technique than a graphical approach for ost real cases ? Construct the dual to the following primal problem :
