b)  Consider a small plant which makes two types of automobile parts, say A and B. It buys castings that are machined, bored and polished. The capacity of machining is 25 per hour for A and 24 per hour for B, capacity for boring is 28 per hour for A and 35 per hour for B and the capacity of polishing is 35 per hour for A and 25 per hour for B.
