Question 9
1.
You have been asked to select at least 3 out of 7 possible sites for oil exploration. Designate each site as S1, S2, S3, S4, S5, S6, and S7. The restrictions are:
Restriction 1. Evaluating sites S1 and S3 will prevent you from exploring site S7.
Restriction 2. Evaluating sites S2 or
S4 will prevent you from assessing site S5.
Restriction 3. Of all the sites, at least 3 should be assessed.

Question 11
1.
The Wiethoff Company has a contract to produce 10000 garden hoses for a customer. Wiethoff has 4 different machines that can produce this kind of hose. Because these machines are from different manufacturers and use differing technologies, their specifications are not the same.
Write the constraint that indicates they can purchase no more than 3 machines.
Answer
[removed] 

Y1 + Y2 + Y3+ Y4 ≤ 3 
[removed] 

Y1 + Y2 + Y3+ Y4 = 3
