Nova Scotia Math Circles is dedicated to enriching the experiences of Nova Scotia student in all areas of mathematics.
Our program vision is to foster enthusiasm for math through interactive, creative, and meaningful presentations.
We offer monthly events at Dalhousie for senior high and advanced junior high students, and visit schools all across the province for free.
Join us for our February event! (Halifax Campus)
Who: Dr. Roman Smirnov
When: DATE CHANGED: Wednesday, February 20th, 2019, 6:30-8:30pm
Where: Room 119, Chase Building, Dalhousie University
What: Linear Inequalities and Economic Problems
We will explore how linear inequalities can be used, for example, to help a local chocolate company to produce two very popular on Valentine's Day brands of chocolate - Hearts and Friends. Both brands of chocolate are made of milk and cocoa butter only. Suppose that in order to manufacture each box of Hearts and Friends, the following quantities are required:
- Each box of Hearts requires 1 unit of milk and 3 units of cocoa butter,
- Each box of Friends requires 1 unit of milk and 2 units of cocoa butter.
The company has a total of 5 units of milk and 12 units of cocoa butter. On each sale made on Valentine's Day, the company expects to make a profit of
- $6 per box of Hearts sold,
- $5 per box of Friends sold.
The question is how many boxes of each brand should the company produce to maximize its profit on Valentine's Day? Join us tonight to learn more about mathematical modelling of economic problems.
Pizza and pop will be served. To register for this event, send an email to email@example.com.
