The following table gives the time taken in minutes by each machine to manufacture 1 unit of each of the products. Sol: Since the maximum number is asked, the machine time of the product being manufactured must be minimum. Since each machine has minutes of manufacturing time, 72 units of Z, 80 units of Y and 60 units of X can be manufactured on the three machines respectively.
Thus, the maximum units that can be manufactured in a day is If the remaining production is of product Z only, what is the maximum number of units of Z that can be manufactured on that day? Sol: Let X and Y be manufactured on machines where they need minimum manufacturing time. So, X and Y are manufactured on machines M1 and M2 respectively. So, 24 units of Z can be manufactured on this machine. So, 15 units of Z can be manufactured on this machine. Since M3 has minutes of manufacturing time, 60 units of Z can be manufactured on this machine. So, the total units of Z that can be manufactured is What is the minimum time required to manufacture 15 units of Y?
Explanation: Before manufacturing 15 units of Y, 45 units of X and 60 units of Z must be manufactured. So, the total is minutes. Directions for questions 4 to 8: The following diagram shows the percentage share of manufacturing sector in total employment in small, medium and large establishments individually.

Not-so-good bits: the truncation of the fireworks first toned down at the request of resident Saudi Arabian royalty, then halted altogether merely because blazing embers were cascading on the breakfast marquee — 'The committee just got cold feet,' said angry fuse-wielder Martin Hoare, 'and the marquee was going to be taken down in a few weeks anyway.
There was Bob Shaw, who'd incautiously been telling everyone all weekend how he'd appreciate votes for the BSFA award which he won.

There was Paul Kincaid presenting the new Arthur C. Bob Shaw's The Ragged Astronauts impressed us hugely as a tremendous book —' [Bob begins to rise from his seat] 'and we're commending it ever so highly, while giving the loot to Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale!
Collapse of Irish party. The NEC's principal bar had its moments when the main approach wasn't closed off to become the fan room , but the decor caused pain to sensitive drinkers and gave insight into the horrid hearts of hotel folk. This was the 'Library' bar, you see, containing shelves of actual printed books, all with half-inch holes bored through their middles so they could be threaded on dowel rods and protected from being read.
Overheard there He's just an ideas man now, he pays a YTS trainee to do the drawing. The bidding for the and conventions see below established that one phrase is now the kiss of death for an Eastercon bid. Prospective committees can drone on about soft toys or tourism opportunities, but should steer well clear of committing themselves to 'science fiction.
The things that fill my working days and blot out convention memories are for the most part deeply boring: three monthly magazine columns, for example. One, the 'Critical Mass' SF review spot in White Dwarf , brings much feedback from mingy fans who read this bit and then put the magazine back on the newsagent's rack, not wishing to buy anything so uncool as a games rag.

Which brings me to other Langford volumes about which some of you have asked, you fools. Review copies also on sale! I seem to have some more small-press notes here.

Deadloss asks 'how it will end', and gives constructive answers My Heart Leaps Up is the autobiography of R. Lafferty, which reads as dottily as his novels. Chris Drumm is issuing the book as lots of his nifty Drumm Booklets, two chapters at a time. Good stuff. Swede Ishes collects 10 chunks of Swedish fanwriting, determinedly lightweight articles which I suspect have lost in the translation: there are funny lines, but often the humour doesn't quite get off the ground. Concatenation , ed. Much effort has gone into financing this via ads and sponsorship, with a print run of Its contents are rather eccentric, with random SF coverage embedded in an unstylish imitation of New Scientist a low point being the tongue-in-cheek formality of NS's 'Ariadne' column: the Concatenation version is dismally pompous.
Having launched their pilot issue in what looks like a bit too much haste, the dynamic duo can — I hope — take more time over the next, and remember that a even exciting news items fall flat when flatly written; b when doing a review of the SF year which covers only six books, it is not convincing when one of this highly select few is a 'Retief' squib from Keith Laumer; c fans interested in tiny snippets of science news probably read them weekly in New Scientist : a yearbook should be made of weightier stuff Where does one go for regular, frequent British SF news?

Talk about "crammed prose" — wow! Sure wish I could publish it I don't know what that means. Harry Harrison : 'What's this Langford! I give you cheques, pound notes, tips, dirty items. Dodgy my arse!
