Let x souveniers of type A and y souveniers of type B are manufactured we have LPP as
Maximise z = 5x + 6y
st 5x + 8y  200
10x + 8y  240 or 5x + 4y  120
x  0, y  0

 Corner Point z = 5x + 6y O(0, 0) A(24, 0) B(8, 20) C(0, 25) z = 0 z = 120 z = 160 z = 150

Profit is maximum when souveniers of type A and 20 souveniers of type B are manufactured max profit = Rs 160
