3 3 Slide © 2005 Thomson/South-Western Blending Problem Ferdinand Feed Company receives four raw grains from which it blends its dry pet food. The pet food advertises that each 8-ounce packet meets the minimum daily requirements for vitamin C, protein and iron. The cost of each raw grain as well as the vitamin C, protein, and iron units per pound of each grain are summarized on the next slide.

8 8 Slide © 2005 Thomson/South-Western Portfolio Planning Problem Winslow Savings has $20 million available for investment. It wishes to invest over the next four months in such a way that it will maximize the total interest earned over the four month period as well as have at least $10 million available at the start of the fifth month for a high rise building venture in which it will be participating.

9
9 9 Slide © 2005 Thomson/South-Western Portfolio Planning Problem For the time being, Winslow wishes to invest only in 2-month government bonds (earning 2% over the 2-month period) and 3-month construction loans (earning 6% over the 3-month period). Each of these is available each month for investment. Funds not invested in these two investments are liquid and earn 3/4 of 1% per month when invested locally.

10
10 Slide © 2005 Thomson/South-Western Portfolio Planning Problem Formulate a linear program that will help Winslow Savings determine how to invest over the next four months if at no time does it wish to have more than $8 million in either government bonds or construction loans.
