    A football team is performing badly. The manager of the team can buy some new players to try and gain some extra points.

    A very simple model of the manager’s situation is as follows.

    He can buy new attackers for £3 million each and new defenders for £1 million each.

    Each attacker will help the club to get two more points and each defender will help the club to get one more point.

    The manager has £12 million to spend.

    The team must gain at least 5 more points.

    The manager must buy at least one defender and at least one attacker.

    He must spend at least £6 million.

    The manager buys x attackers and y defenders.

    (a) Express the manager’s situation in terms of inequalities suitable for investigating the problem by linear programming.

    (4)

    (b) On the graph below, draw a suitable diagram to enable the problem to be investigated graphically, indicating the feasible region.
