# Fox Enterprises is considering six projects for possible construction over the next four ycars. Fox can undertake any of the projects partially or completely. A partial undertaking of a project will prorate both the return and cash outlays proportionatel; The expected (present value) returns and cash outlays for the projects are given in th following table. Cash outlay (\$1000) Project Year ! Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Return (\$1000) 10.5 14.4 2.2 2.4 324.00 8.3 12.6 9.5 3.1 358,00 10.2 14.2 5.6 4.2 177.50 4 7.2 10.5 7.5 5.0 148,00 12.3 10.1 8.3 6.9 6.3 182.00 9.2 7.8 5.1 123.50 Available funds (\$1000) 60.0 70.0 35.0 20.0 (a) Formulate the problem as a linear program, and determine the optimal project mix that maximizes the total return using AMPL, Solver, or TORA. Ignore the time value of money. (b) Suppose that if a portion of project 2 is undertaken, then at least an equal portion of project 6 must be undertaken. Modify the formulation of the model, and find the new optimal solution. (c) In the original model, suppose that any funds left at the end of a year are used in the next year. Find the new optimal solution, and determine how much cach ycar "borrows" from the preceding year. For simplicity, ignore the time value of money.
