If a young man rides his motorcycle at 25 km/hr, he had to spend Rs.2 per km on petrol. If he rides at a faster speed of 40 km/hr, the petrol cost increases at Rs.5 per km. He has Rs.100 to spend on petrol and wishes to find what is the maximum distance he can travel within one hour. Express this as LPP and solve it graphically.

A toy company manufactures two types of dolls, A and B. Market tests and available resources have indicated that the combined production level should not exceed 1200 dolls per week and the demand for dolls of type B is at most half of that for dolls of type A. Further, the production level of dolls of type A can exceed three times the production of dolls of other type by at most 600 units. If the company makes profit of Rs 12 and Rs 16 per doll respectively on dolls A and B, how many of each should be produced weekly in order to maximise the profit?
