The homework problems for Module 4 are: 2-24, 34, 36, 38 (you only have to do part A for these problems. You do not have to do the part B graphical solutions) and 3-10, 12 (parts B and C for Problem 12), 28, 30. Please use Excel solver function.

12. For the linear programming model formulated in Problem 10 and solved graphically in Problem 11: a. Determine the sensitivity ranges for the objective function coefficients, using graphical analysis.
b. Verify the sensitivity ranges determined in ( a) by using the computer. c. Using the computer, determine the shadow prices for additional hours of production time on line 1 and line 2 and indicate whether the company would prefer additional line 1 or line 2 hours.
28. The Bluegrass Distillery produces custom- blended whiskey. A particular blend consists of rye and bourbon whiskey. The company has received an order for a minimum of 400 gallons of the custom blend. The customer specified that the order must contain at least 40% rye and not more than 250 gallons of bourbon. The customer also specified that the blend should be mixed in the ratio of two parts rye to one part bourbon. The distillery can produce 500
