A bakery shop bakes two types of breads,  A and  B , which are made of three types of ingredients: P , Q and  R . One loaf of type  A bread needs 3 units of ingredient P ,1 unit of ingredient Q and 3 units of ingredient  R. One loaf of type  B bread needs4 units of ingredient P , 2 units of ingredient Q and 8 units of ingredient  R. The bakeryhas 480 units of ingredient P , 180 units of ingredient Q and 640 units of ingredient  R. The profit for Type  A bread is RM2.00 per loaf, whereas the profit of type  B bread isRM3.00 per loaf.(a) Formulate the linear programming problem to obtain maximum profit.[4 marks ](b) Using the graphical method, determine the number of loaves of each type of breadthat must be baked to obtain the maximum profit and find this maximumprofit.[9 marks ]12.
